About Descent Font Family

The Descent family is a unique, graffiti style, layered type system consisting of a contextual style & a classic style, each with a base fill version & an outline version. Based on a signature category of wildstyles by Graffiti Fonts® lead designer Raseone, this family was designed to be rotated 90 degrees clockwise so that the text reads in a downward direction. OpenType scripting in the contextual version enables up to 12 unique variants of any word using alternating patterns of interlocking glyphs. The classic version does not include OpenType features but instead has initial glyphs as capitals and medial glyphs in the lowercase positions. The characters in the classic version are similar to the more advanced contextual version but noticeably different & a bit more irregular. Glyphs from both styles can be mixed & used interchangeably & both styles have corresponding outline fonts.

About Graffiti Fonts

The Graffiti Fonts® type foundry was created in 1999 to fill the gap in the typographic world created by the absence of modern graffiti lettering & handstyles. When the foundry released its first commercial collection in 2001 there were less than a dozen fonts in existence that had been designed to purposely emulate & identify as modern graffiti. By the time the 4th collection was released in 2009 over 140 fonts were included with the foundry having produced more graffiti style typefaces than the rest of the collective world. The primary designer Matthew (Raseone) Napolitano is a lifelong graffiti artist and graphic designer. His lettering, fonts & other work have been featured across industries by names like: Lucasfilm, Netflix, Warner Bros., Midway, THQ, Sony, Genentech, Penguin, Avon and others. His 2003 Wildstyle™ font family was featured in the 2012 Yale University text entitled: Graphic Design A Modern History alongside Shepard Fairey's Obama poster as the book recounts the impact of graffiti art in all its facets on modern design. While this foundry has an obvious theme & focus & while graffiti itself has spawned many of its own unique new forms and styles you'll find that graffiti is an art form without limitations and this foundry builds lettering in any and all motifs, not only traditional graffiti styles. Graffiti artists will adapt and use any technique, any style, any technology, any tradition & seek to blend, expand & attempt to improve upon or expand it. This freedom is the real theory behind our foundry. Thank you for looking. We hope our work can help you to achieve your creative goals.
