Filthy Black Italic


Brighton-based design studio launch display typeface; Filthy Black Italic

Inspired by latex textures and curvaceous forms, Filthy Black Italic is a display typeface intended to be viewed at large sizes. The heavy weight and distinctive small serifs have created a typeface best used for headlines and titles, with many characters using rounded drops to emphasize the fluidity of the letters.

To celebrate the launch of the font filthymedia teamed up with Brighton-based digital agency FutureDeluxe and music production duo Spectrasoul to create a promotional trailer that embodies the new font, which can be viewed at

filthymedia also produced a limited run of Letraset-inspired A3 specimen sheets to give away free with the first fifty purchases of Filthy Black Italic. Printed on 140GSM GF Smith Black Plike with spot UV varnish, they illustrate the high quality and style of the font, particularly when used at larger sizes.

Filthy Black Italic is available to purchase exclusively from HypeForType
