Graffiti as an art form has taken on a unique urban vibe as the art form has of late made a welcome revival in cities across the globe. With that, there has been a revolution in the creation of Graffiti fonts that are now being widely used in cartoons, advertising, and on the web. Graffiti fonts are unique in that they are eye-catching, colorful, and are easily able to capture the attention of readers. Once used on urban walls to make political and social statements, their acceptance has grown into other mediums too because of their striking creativity and sort of provocative looks. These design traits have found takers in the advertising media, where people are increasingly adopting it to get their messages across.
