Get on the Fast Track with These 20 Racing Fonts

Typography is interesting in that one can instantly change the mood or evoke a certain feel simply by picking the perfect lettering style. Think of vintage posters or Hollywood glamour, for instance. Aside from carefully selected backdrops, the chosen typeface also adds to the overall atmosphere of the entire design.

The same is true if you want to make your compositions ‘move’. The illusion of speed or movement can be conveyed with the help of dynamic racing fonts. Whether you need people to feel that adrenaline rush, or you’re after a bit of speed, take your projects up a notch by using the right font.
