Nosegrind font (Scriptorium Library). Click on the font picture to buy the font.
Nosegrind is a bit of a departure from our usual more traditional font offerings. It’s based on skate-culture graffiti gleaned from various samples of similar style found on walls in Austin and online.
The font includes two character sets, one which is plain and one which is enhanced with outlines. In normal usage the characters should nest, with slight overlap from one character to the next as shown in the sample to the right, but the lower case characters in the font are spaced evenly but not pre-nested, leaving the degree of overlap up to the user - nesting is easily adjusted with the tracking option in programs like Photoshop, Quark or InDesign. Ultimately Nosegrind will be added to our Modern Fonts collection, where it ought to fit in nicely.
