Few designers know how to create a check mark which will look good with typography, icons and user interface. Most professional fonts do not have check marks, and when they do — they are just awful:

Плохие галочки
Arial
Lucida Grande
Minion
Capitals
Meyrio
Centro Slab

To make things right, the bureau designed good check marks – or galochki [ˈgɑːloʧkɪ] in Russian – for popular fonts:

Check marks in EPS

Check marks are free for any purposes if you send us a link, a photo or a screenshot of how you use them (galochki@artgorbunov.ru).

The bureau designed check marks for the fonts that do not have ones of their own. We call for font designers to create check marks for all families and faces they design.

When placing a check mark inside a geometric form, consider that the optical center of the symbol is not in the middle, but on the vertical of the bottom
