Free Fonts : A Walk on the Grunge Side

Advertisement

With so many free fonts available on the web today, it is easy to miss out on some true gems in the typographic arena. It is hard to stay on top of the latest developments and releases when there are so many outlets to turn to find your fonts. Today we aim to help you out with this charge, by showcasing some grunge laden free fonts, most of which are less than a year old.

Looking around for fonts, it became fairly clear, that most designers (be they makers of fonts or featurers of fonts) tend towards clean, sharp typography. We wanted to take things in a different direction. So we went for a little walk on the grunge side as we searched for free fonts to feature for our readers. We hope you enjoy!

    Great collections!

    Thank you for the awesome list of fonts! I really like Smash Punkers quitet a lot. I must use it!

    Another great resource for free fonts as well as premium/exclusive fonts is http://pilo.me – It is a paid subscription forum, but it is totally well worth it if you love great typography. I noticed most of your list was from dafonts so I encourage you and others to give Pilo a go, it is a true typography lovers mecca!

    Well, thank you again for the font resources! I look forward to trying some of these out!
