Right now, one of the trends in graphic design is the use of grunge fonts. This is the style of typography that deviates from the clean, glossy and properly aligned and systematic typefaces that we know about. By grunge font it means something which is eroded, mangled, cracked, worn out, wild, furious, distressed or anything along that line. Unlike traditional typography, grunge fonts are purposely designed to appear to be messed up. Thus, they avoid consistency, clean curves, straight lines and edges, etc. These fonts tell a story well beyond the literal meaning of the text. They have an attitude of their own or emotion that they want to convey to the readers. Needless to say, the popularity of grunge fonts give us a break from the perfectly shaped and monotonic letters of the alphabet as we know it.
Here in this article, we are sharing with you some of the grunge fonts that you can use in your projects. Whether you are working on a web design, or a print art, you will find these fonts useful. You can download and use these fonts for free for personal projects but for commercial purposes, you need contact their respective authors. Just a word of note, grunge fonts like any other style of typography, have to be matched to the mood and purpose of the design. You should see to it that they do not undermine the look of your design or blur your message. If you know a well implemented grunge font in a design, or one which is poorly executed, please give us a link below. We are also encouraging discussions that may foster learning in this area of design. Share your thoughts and share this article as well. Enjoy!
