Taking Fonts Outside: 30 Examples of Street Typography

By Tara Hornor

Street art, street typography, or typography graffiti — whatever term you call it — is one of the most intense art forms for many designers to study. Part of the intrigue is the speed and the limited tools with which these artists have at their disposal, not to mention the fact that often the art is illegal. Street artists not only need to plan, but they need to execute unique strokes to create striking images which captivate users, even if only for a short time.

These examples focus on stunning typographic concepts in graffiti. Note the dynamic color selection and scale at which these street typography designs were created!
