5 Excellent Free Grunge Fonts

on March 18, 2007

These are 5 of the (in my opinion) best free “grunge” or “eroded” typefaces of late. Three of which are from the same artist/typographer Gyom S?guin. I hope you didn’t miss these, but if you did, you can download them right away. They’re free. I wish I had more opportunities to take advantage of these fonts in a real situation, but I find that it’s always a good idea to keep these fonts around to save time having to look for them later.

Turbo Ripped

By: Gyom S?guin. An excellent mash-up grunge font with a lot of extra detail added. I have the feeling that this font has begun to set the bar for mash-up grunge fonts, and we will most likely see a lot more fonts to follow in this style. (You won’t hear me complaining!)

Dirty Ames

By: Typology. A very detailed and intricate combination of wood type and hardcore street grunge. Not for the shy or light-hearted. This grunge font means business. Very nice work Typology.

Dirty Ames

Sidewalk

By: Gyom S?guin. A very well thought out grunge font with a strong textural feel to it. It’s a heavier font, and works very well as a background layer or as a texture layer itself.

Neoprint M319

By: Polenimschaufenster. I like this font because of its extra shapes, outside of the actual letters. It has a stamp-like feel with a twist, that works very well, making use of both positive shapes, and negative space.

By: Gyom S?guin. This is a very nice grunge font with a hint of a wester feel. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this one on a movie poster in the future.
