Yes, graffiti has its own styles and types. If you just stop for a few minutes and study the graffiti in the street, then you’ll notice the composition of the design and be able to determine the real intention of the spray paint can. Unfortunately, some people don’t have time to appreciate it. They simply walk by each day without noticing the differences.
Tag, for instance, is the most basic and popular form of graffiti. It’s essentially the artist’s signature. A tagger, however, doesn’t have the right drawing skills or they lack creativity. But, as soon as they’ve developed their style, they can go from a lack-of-design to stylish ones.
If you’re a fan of graffiti and want to use it to your own design, then you’d be glad to know that there are fonts that you can use that could help you achieve a graffiti style.
The graffiti fonts listed here are free to download and you can use them for either personal or commercial projects, depending on the designer’s rules.
1. Ruthless One by Mans Greaback
One of the best things about this font is that it doesn’t produce overly dramatic effects that’ll make the design difficult to read. Keep in mind that some monitors might not be able to display fonts properly.
With this font, your text is still readable, as long as you use the right background. Unfortunately, you can’t use it for your commercial projects as the designer emphasized it as for “personal use only.”
2. Trasher by Niels Visser
It’s simple yet appealing. The letters T, K, and Y are beautifully designed. It’s a true type font that has more white space in it, thereby, encouraging your audience to focus on the text.
3. El&Font Bubble by Jerome Delage
This font bubble type isn’t difficult to read, if you fill it with some colors, like blue or orange. The font looks like a real graffiti that you see on the street but with some additional aspects, like the “x” mark to emphasize the space.
4. Grafoggie by Ogeday Koc
It’s available in different characters. When you use it to your own design, make sure that you use contrast to further grab the attention of your audience. If you apply it correctly, your design will surely stand out.
5. Amsterdam Graffiti by Jesse Kuiper
This one is very simple. It’s not too casual. Using it to your own design doesn’t create too much distraction if you place it a serious content. The “8” character is lovely.
6. Whoa! by Johan Waldenstrom
If you want a clear font with graffiti style, then this could be your bet. It’s large enough to make your text readable. It’ll surely help you show your creative side. But don’t use it in, say, document. Well, it’s too big for that purpose. Fill the foreground color with orange and you could have a well-designed text that’ll make your audience go “Whoa!”
7. Subway by Johan Waldenstrom
This is another font creation by Johan. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have many characters. It’s not clear whether or not you can use it for commercial purposes. But, one thing is for sure; you can freely download and use it for personal projects.
8. Sadoc Wild by Beraka Fonts
The characters appear like Arabic characters. If your design is related to anything about Arabian, then this could be the right font to download.
9. Graffiti Treat by Typodermic Fonts
This is an angular, graffiti-inspired font that you can use for personal and commercial projects. The characters are easy to read. It’s packed with several special characters that you can apply to your own design.
10. Urban Scrawl Chill by Uranfonts
It can provide your design with a street-culture character.
11. El&Font Block by Jerome Delage
This one is quite different from its font bubble counterpart, designed by the same artist, Jerome. Its foreground color is filled with black. Some characters do have some stains in the background, which are cool to look at.
12. Graffonti by fontvir.us
It’s a typical graffiti font that you see on the streets.
13. QUB Font by Adi Dizdarevic
It only has 30% graffiti style in it but it looks awesome.
14. Servin for Salute by Mans Greback
This font is ideal for Halloween-inspired design.
15. JustFist by JustFist
It’s still a beautifully-designed font without lowercase characters.
16. Writers by Johan Waldenstrom
It has very limited characters but each letter is well-designed, especially the Q, T and Y.
17. Broken Records by Timo Kuilder
The characters aren’t the typical graffiti fonts that you see on the street but they can still do the trick.
These pretty sweet fonts are free to download. With their styles, your visitor’s interest will increase allowing your design to stand out. But, when you use them, make sure that your text is still readable so your visitors won’t have a hard time reading your message.
