If you’re looking for a font, which will make your design stand out from the crowd, consider using some punk fonts. These are usually a font based on graffiti art, created by teenagers in the 1980s. A punk font comes with a unique typeface, which is something you cannot find in any other typeface. Instead of using the traditional Times New Roman or Arial typeface, the letters are designed in a more childish and unconventional style. In many instances, it’s impossible to read what is written due to the squiggly, distorted design of the letters. However, you’ll be able to recognize this font from the many punk rock fonts that are often seen on t-shirts and other clothing.
One of the things that distinguishes punk fonts from other kinds of lettering is the bold, distorted design that conveys a certain spirit. It was in the late sixties that a group of British teenagers called themselves the punks. These rebels combined their efforts to be different from what they saw as the overly aggressive music of the time and purposely wrote letters in a style that was all about fun and disregarded all kinds of social norms. They were well on their way to creating an icon that would last for decades on the concert stage and in popular culture.
