Grungy Old Typewrite
6 OTF Fonts | Designer: Roger Ridpath | Design Date: Apr 14, 2015

This font is based on two typed letters, each on two pages and dated 1901. The results are eroded, rough, irregular and grungy. The final results are a vintage look. As a designer I wanted as much flexibility as possible so there are 6 versions that are design to work together. Additionally I decided to keep the grunge and irregularities within the shape and not include surrounding typewriter or paper marks. I leave it to the design to add those elements as desired.

One note, the letter spacing is much tighter than an old typewriter. I felt that readability for modern readers suffered with the added space. Of course you can get that same look by increasing the letter spacing in your favorite design program.
