Grunge poster fonts, as represented by our featured rising star Boycott, are noisy, destructive contemporary typefaces guaranteed to grab your attention. We like to think of them as fonts with attitude that can be used in big, bold designs.
Brushdrawn and Blotty
is an inky font that will give your designs a jolt of electricity. It works well at large sizes. The font comes in wet, dry, and splat styles.
Geometric and Rough
Tecon is short for technical construction. This font comes in two weights, outline and solid, which allows you to superimpose them to apply color effects.
features a total of eight fonts. The regular set includes regular and italic, with the bold and bold italic being
designed with negative-space knockouts for lots of options for typesetting. The versatility doesn’t stop
there, though. The alternate set provides different grunge patterns for an interesting and varied look.
Croteau is a retro design that works well for titling. It features 250 OpenType automatic ligatures. If you use OpenType-savvy applications, in particular Adobe InDesign, the ligatures and custom letter pairs are substituted as you enter text, creating the illusion of handdrawn lettering.
Bold and Offbeat
Little Piggy has a bold yet offbeat appearance. Its regular and wide weights, including a backslant style, offer dynamic possibilities for logotypes, posters, and headlines.
Type Fetish has released a number of grunge poster fonts. As the designer states, they are perfect typefaces to hide any words of truth by burying them in chaos.
