Knight Brush Graffiti Font

A free demo version for personal use is offered here. Hand-painted style with strong brush strokes and flicks.

Fusterd Brush Graffiti Font

This completely free font takes the brushstroke effect one step further. Realistically, some characters are not fully formed or shaded. A cool rushed effect.

Hoodson Script Graffiti Font

This Hoodson Script gives us the feel of a really well worked retro tag. Very memorable, stand out text on thick black outline.

Vindica Rebel Graffiti Font

Angular, aggressive, rushed brush effect it’s full of life and energy. Each character looks as if it is formed by a quick flick. Could be perfect for your image.

Ceviche One

The Ceviche typeface is a curvaceous retro 60s look, that works really effectively on larger signs and headings. Solid black, individual characters, readable and clear but dramatic.

Freckle Face Graffiti Font

Wavy blobs of letters, no straight lines, fun and funny. The quirky freckle Face font doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Frijole

If you want an element of fun and movement maybe Frijole is the font for you. Quivering marks and highlight bubbles combine to create an eye-catching typeface.

Vampiro One Graffiti Font

A script font that joins beautifully together but is still jutting and angular. Solid block lettering has a thick marker pen effect.

Nosifer

Nosifer’s characters drip and ooze as if they are tar on a scorching summer’s day. Read it quick it’s going to run away. Unique look.

Plaster Graffiti Font

With an unusual Stencil effect, Plaster is very different. Huge vertical gaps through the letters centres give an abstract quality that is sometimes tricky to read at first glance, but it keeps you interested enough to keep looking. The result comes together after a few seconds, worth the effort.

Keania One

Another stencil effect but a very different look. Softer and curvy, each letter is broken up in a natural way making it easily readable even in smaller sizes.

Sedgwick Ave Display

An unmistakable graffiti feel to celebrate the birth of hip hop. You really can imagine seeing this on a street wall in New York. Edgy and urban.

Paintertz is another spray can effect font, which is only free for personal use. The letters are solidly formed and well rounded, the occasional one has a nice drip effect too, just to add to the realism. Extra characters are supplied including underlining slashes.

Spray Letters

A spray font that is thinner and very, very readable. Great drip effects, hazy outline, variable thickness, and completely natural. Only personal use though I’m afraid.

Urban Decay Graffiti Font

Urban inner city, brushstroke typeface. Dripping, splattered, angled and aggressive, edgy, and awesomely cool.

NMF Burner

Well designed, well balanced classical graffiti font. Bubbled, block individual characters make it clear, simple, and effective. And it’s 100% free.

Nuevo Trenta Graffiti Font

It’s different, and you have to donate to the author, but it may well be worth it if this is the one for you. A Slashed effect that looks like it could be cut into fabric and each character fade to a rough frayed edge.
