30 Car Fonts for Those with a Need for Speed

This is a compilation of car fonts, that are very similar or identical to the fonts commonly used in the logos of various car related companies. But this does not mean that these logos are actually designed with these fonts. Rather most of the time the logos we see are produced by professional designers who have an understanding of typography.

You might have seen car signs with these types of fonts used on them at a car wash, airport, or parking lot. This is because of the high competition in the car wash industry and it is important for a wash owner to be very creative and unique in their advertising. Car owners will do almost anything they can to get people to notice them and this is one way they do it. They come up with interesting fonts used in this way to make the car wash owners stand out from the rest.

These are just some car fonts used for commercial brand name advertising. There are other kinds of fonts that are used for this kind of advertising including those that are printed on a magnet, bumper sticker, key chain, or even a t-shirt. Many people who sell a certain product or service will also have their business name, website, and phone number printed on these special fonts.

It’s great that so many different people are now using this type of font in their advertising because it makes their message a lot more unique than most others. When you think about all of the great things that you can have for your car in its life, including being able to say whatever you want and having a bright light shine on your vehicle, having special fonts is one way you can enhance all of that

25. Biome

Biome font

In the sketches that formed the basis for his typeface Biome, Crossgrove experimented with inner and outer shapes in different styles, adapted letters to the form of the super-ellipse, and added curves only to remove these again. His challenge was to find a harmonious and coherent approach that provided sufficient contrast with existing fonts.

Biome is essentially in the sans serif tradition and the letters exhibit only minor variations in terms of line thickness. There is still a suggestion of the super-ellipse at many points, but this never becomes the predominant design factor. While most of the terminals of the vertical strokes are only slightly rounded, the horizontals and diagonals have pronounced arches and it is these that basically determine the round and soft character of the typeface.

26. Dominion

Dominion font

Dominion was based on an early 1970s film type called Lampoon, and named after an edgy 1980s goth-rock song by the Sisters of Mercy.

Dominion’s severely geometric shapes are a strange cross between early Bauhaus minimalism and later sharp square faces used for instance in Soviet propaganda posters. While maintaining the strong confidence of the main font, the italic gives off a strong hint of a race car decal appearance.
