Modern Poster Fonts


Click any font to see a larger sample.












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.

The fonts in this collection are basically poster fonts, intended for designing display advertising, posters, leaflets and flyers. They include some classic designs with a modern feel and some entirely new designs unique to the period. Dromon and Eglantine are actually based on designs of the Art Nouveau period, but ones which have resurfaced and gained a lot of popularity in recent years. Hamilton has the classic look of movie poster titles. Fortinbras has a strong commercial art look. Oblivion, Squiffy, Cosmic Dude and Ducatus Rough are all inspired by nightclub poster lettering. Ascelon has a modern look and seemed like just the text font the collection needed. Bilitis is there because we needed a brush script style and it’s our most modern looking one. It’s a strange mix, but definitely in the modern mode.

Several of the fonts are new releases, specially for this package. Ducatus Rough, Cosmic Dude, Oblivion and Ekberg were put out just to make our selection of modern fonts more complete. You haven’t seen them before and you won’t find them in any of our other packages.

For a limited time the Modern Fonts collection is available at an introductory price of only $59. It comes for either Windows or MacOS computers and includes both Postscript and TrueType fonts. You can order by phone at 1-512-276-7352, or to order online just CLICK HERE

To get an idea of what our Modern fonts are like, try out the demo version of our latest one, Cosmic Dude. It doesn’t have all of the punctuation and variant characters, but should give you a good feel for the font.

Cosmic Dude is based on hand-drawn poster lettering. It has a super-heavy, irregular look with variant characters which fit together remarkably well to producea a sort of interlacing effect. The full version includes a large selection of variant character forms and special characters. Click here to download the working trial version of Cosmic Dude for either WINDOWS or MacOS. Or you can purchase this font online and get it quickly by email, including all the alternate and additional characters – BUY IT NOW

  3. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN! <a href="[Link deleted]I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women? American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least. This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
