Round-up of awesome eroded & grunge style fonts

These hand selected eroded and grunge style fonts are great for web designers and logo artists alike – they are free to download too. Distorted or eroded fonts are being used by designers more often than you think. Of course, we may not use this kind of font for every occasion, but if  you are looking for something with more creative power than your simple everyday font, then this is definitely worth a shot.  Take a look below – I put together a nice collection of creative distorted / eroded, grunge style fonts you shouldn’t be missing in your font library. Enjoy!

Fun & Amazing Vintage Print Ads Roundup for Inspiration

Wetern Electric: Western Electric was ahead of their times. Amazing how technology is moving so fast. This ad below is from 1969 (I think), but a prototype was tested in 1956.

Ad 1955 General Telephone System: Tradition of Service

1955 Ad Realist Camera. Stereo Realist. Cool. It says you can take 3D snapshots with this 2 eyed camera!

1968 Ad Polaroid instant land camera. The 60 second excitement. I can’t imagine what would happen if today’s digital cameras made you wait 60 seconds before seeing the image. That would cause a lot of excitement.

Ohio Art – Might Tiny Product Packaging: Hey this kind of reminds me of the Sony mini discs? What ever happened to those?

Have no fear…Even Wilt can fit in the latest VW!.  See a VW ad from our times:

and if you want to buy the car you can buy it here, y’never know.

Camel Cigarettes: Its interesting how cigarette companies specifically chose doctors to promote the product.  It would seem that health was a concern for smokers – even back then – and therefore probably ads  like this would reassure the people it’s not so bad and reduce health concerns.

Zippo – Just For Mom Source – That’s funny.

NOW FOR DRINKS:
CocaCola “coke” Hospitality: Couches used to be pretty small back then – that can’t be a 3 seater. It’s actually nice how in such a casual atmosphere people used to dress so fancy. At least that what it seems like based on this image.

Pepsi Cola – Gives More Bounce for the Ounce: I think the logo on the bottle cap looks pretty good. BTW check out below the way Pepsi branding has evolved over time, it’s pretty interesting.

Jello flavors: I can not imagine eating olives with Jello, but I do love olives and I have never tried it, so who knows.

A selected few from the JELLO SERIES: It’s awesome how illustration used to be so prominent in print ads of the 50’s . It’s refreshing to see such nice illustrations while being influenced by todays computer age. Today, hand illustrations are used much less than they could be, I think, when an illustration is done well, it  could really spice up a project.
