Evil/Chaotic TypeFaces?
0

I’m looking for a font (or fonts) that can be used for a header that gives a feel of “Chaos”, or one that just looks “Evil”, or abnormally serious. One that makes the word “Makai” look good (and by good I mean the opposite of Ugly).

(By the way, I wasn’t sure where I should’ve posted this, but, Yeah, I tried this section).

William, thanks for the mention!

Aleph, can a font be both dirty and elegant?

BTW, I think Margo Chase rules.

Adriano,

Excellent evil suggestions. About the double and tripple posting: just click the post button once (it is realtime). If any error messages come up, or it takes a long time, disregard them, your message will be posted.

What I do is launch a duplicate window before posting. Then do the posting process. After a couple of seconds, close the posting window (regardless of whether it’s finished loading). When you refresh the remaining window you will see your post.

Maybe some fonts like the kind Eduardo Recife
makes.


Why don’t you use one of Eduardo’s fonts then?

You might also want to check here:

and here:

http://www.fontdiner.com/main.html (then click on braineaters)

2 other suggestions. Go to myfonts.com, login and update the settings to display the word(s) you need and then do a keyword search. This helps visualize other options you might not consider. Also, I’m not a big fan of free fonts, but a recent client wanted to do a poster that had writing like the old really bad “b” monster movies (i.e. the swamp thing, black lagoon). He didn’t find anything that work in the commercial arena so we did a search in the free fonts and he found the perfect one. It is a really bad quality font that gave the exact look he wanted.

The few that immediately spring to mind are:

Arcana or Banshee from Adobe (http://www.adobe.com/type)

Mason from Emigre (http://www.emigre.com)

Mason is too overused for my tastes and a little “magicy”, Banshee is nice, but it’s a little “Happy”, the fonts by Margo Chase are a bit too clich

Disturbance is more chaos than evil. For evil, check out these by our own Hrant ‘You have to hate to create’ Papazian: Domination Available and Brutaal

What about Storm’s Negro or the aptly named Evil?

hmm, those are all nice, too, I especially like FF Disturbance, it seems like it’d be good for quotes.

How about some fonts that are Elegantly Dark, too? (Does that make sense?)

Carter’s Mantinia may be worth a look…

Also see Storm’s Libczioes and Tenebra.
