Stencil Autobahn SVG bitmap font

Autobahn is a bold display stencil typeface that has a monumental amount of spray paint detail.

It's not a traditional vector font. It blows the traditional vector font out of the water. You will not find a more detailed and realistic stencil spray paint font and that's due to the new OpenType-SVG Bitmap font format.

A traditional vector font as one colour and no transparency. Autobahn has full transparency and thousands of shades of black and grey. The OpenType-SVG Bitmaps technology gives the font so much more detail than the old font format.

Autobahn stencil font

I created Autobahn with real stencils, real spray paint and real paper. All hand cut by my little digits and converted to a typeface.

You'll struggle to find a more realistic graffiti stencil font.

Bonus spray paint drips

Included in the download are 42 high-resolution real spray paint drips. Use them to add extra detail to your type work or use them for other projects.

Autobahn font usage

Autobahn emulates a real stencil font, so is far from perfect. Some letters have overspray, others have paint splatters, and some look clean and crisp.

Each glyph has its own unique texture. The font is messy and edgy just like it would be in the real world.

The typeface is ideal for getting that urban street style or the military look. Suitable for advertising, posters, packaging, album covers, headlines, book covers and packaging or anything where you want that unique graffiti vibe.

Unicase typeface

Autobahn is a unicase typeface—it has no lowercase letters. Everything is in uppercase. It does contain alternative uppercase letters in the lowercase a-z.
It also has a few alternative glyphs with the counters removed. So with at least two alternatives for each letter, you can get a more random look.

OpenType SVG, please read

OpenType-SVG bitmap is a new technology. Support is limited but improving.

OpenType-SVG Bitmaps fonts 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 user, you might not see your letters when you install the font, but it does work in the applications mentioned above.

Adobe Indesign does not fully support OpenType-SVG bitmap fonts—so buy this at your own risk. You have been warned.

Image backups

If your software is too old I've provided high-resolution images, so you can still manually compose letterforms inside Photoshop or your application of choice.

Old software use Image backups

If you have older versions of the above software, you could still use the font. 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 standard vector font is included, but it’s nowhere near the quality of the OpenType-SVG Bitmap font.
