Modern Poster Fonts

Because the modern era of design draws on so many past traditions, it’s hard to nail down a selection of fonts and label them as essentially modern. To research our modern fonts collection we looked at nightclub posters from the 80s and 90s, popular advertising of the period, and tried to pick out fonts which fit the design styles of that period or were based on hand lettering from that period. The result is an eclectic set of 12 fonts which have the look and feel of the last decade and a half or so.
