    Great example of grunge type, I especially like that Abduzeedo design that looks like the end of a burner cigarette.

    Great collection of typo.
    It’s incredible how the art of typography really sets the stage for the poster, brochure, etc. Without the right font style it’s really hard to convince the reader of a the feeling you are trying to convey.
