Autobahn SVG bitmap stencil font

£15.00

Autobahn is a display stencil font that is about as realistic spray paint stencil font as you can get (easy for me to say). Thanks to the new OpenType-SVG bitmap technology Autobahn has an incredible amount of detail—it blows the traditional vector font out of the water.

Rather than just one solid colour, OpenType SVG Bitmaps fonts allow full-colour bitmaps. No more solid colour and full transparency, this typeface has bags of detail.

Autobahn stencil font

Autobahn was created with real cardboard stencils that I cut out by hand. Yup using a stencil and cardboard my little fat digits really took the brunt of creating this font.

I then used black acrylic spray paint to create every glyph. Autobahn intentionally sets out to emulate modern graffiti lettering.

The typeface is far from flawless. Some letters have a perfect spay look, some have tons of overspray or paint splatters. The real spray paint gives it a unique texture like it’s damaged and rough.

Autobahn is edgy, messy and distressed just like it would be in the real world.

The typeface is ideal for getting that bold military style or the urban street look. Excellent for packaging, album covers, advertising, headlines, book covers and posters.

It will definitely give your designs that unique graffiti look.

Bonus real spray paint drips

Included with the Autobahn font is a collection of 42 high-resolution spray paint drips.

All created with real spray paint on real paper but they have a fully transparent background.
That means you can easily change the colour in Photoshop or your painting application of choice.

Autobahn is a Unicase typeface

Autobahn is a unicase font, that means it has no lowercase letters. Everything is in uppercase. It does contain alternative uppercase letters in the lowercase a-z and a few more additional glyphs with missing counters. So each A-Z letter has at least two alternatives to give the font a more random look.

OpenType SVG

A note of caution about OpenType-SVG bitmap fonts. They are still new and are not fully compatible with all applications and Operating Systems. For more information read my post OpenType-SVG colour fonts.

They only work in the latest versions of Photoshop CC2017+ and Illustrator CC 2018+, plus a handful of other native OSX apps. They also work on the more modern versions of Windows again only in Photoshop CC2017+ and Illustrator CC 2018+.

Windows users, you might not see your letters when you install the font. But it does work in the applications mentioned above.

The latest Adobe Indesign also supports OpenType-SVG bitmap typefaces, but you may encounter problems exporting them as CMYK PDF files.

Old software use Image backups

If you have older versions of the above software, you could still use the Autobahn typeface. I’ve included high-resolution images of each letter. You will need to compose your lettering inside Photoshop or Illustrator and import into any other application as an image. Not ideal, but very handy if you want a high-quality type but with older applications.

Vector font included

A normal vector font is included, but I’m totally honest with you it’s nowhere near the quality of the OpenType-SVG Bitmap font. Use it as a backup or for older applications that don’t support OpenType-SVG bitmap fonts.
