Hackney is entirely hand-painted sans serif. A raw, bold, condensed font, with brushed imperfections and an earthy realism.

.SVG fonts or colours fonts are a great new format, which makes it possible to add loads of detail and texture not possible before. Hackney .SVG keeps all the incredible definition of the real painted strokes as a transparent texture, so it gives you a proper hand-painted effect, without you having to do anything (or go near paint). .SVG fonts work just like normal fonts, but allow so much more customisation and look hyper-real. They can be used in any colour and on any background.

Hackney is an all caps font, with two alternatives for every letter, to maintain the custom made look, without obvious doubles.

Hackney Font collection is designed to be an incredibly accessible hand-painted font.
It includes three versions of the font to suit everyone’s situation. (see screenshot 11)

To keep files size down only European language support is available in the .SVG and .TTF font.
However, a much greater range of foreign support is available in the .PNG files (inc. Vietnamese), and can be manually added to your text in Photoshop/Illustrator.

Included in this set:

  • Hackney SVG – Super realistic brush painted font (A drawn height of roughly 800 pixels)
  • Hackney .TTF – Traditional vector version of the font, less detail than the SVG but a great rugged counterpart that works universally on all software.
  • Hackney .PNG – Incredibly high-resolution files of every glyph (3,000 x 5,000), for people who want to use the font on a very large scale.
  • Extra Painted Strokes .PNG – 50 hand-painted strokes for you to design with.

Zipped File Size: 887 MB

File Types Included: .PNG, .SVG, .TTF, .OTF

Please note that Stylistic Alternates will require professional design software such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign or Inkscape.

Language Support: ALL Latin based Languages

    Beauty font! I’m going to bookmark this for possible use on a future project. Would be great if you had a “wishlist” feature! Can’t forget this one… Cheers!

      Hey Matt,

      Thanks so much for commenting and for your super helpful suggestion for a wish list feature!

      This is definitely something that is on our radar, and our technical team are currently looking into suitable plugins for us to hopefully be able to feature in future for you. In the meantime, if you have access to Pinterest, we do include a PinIt feature, so that you can always save items to your own boards, to revisit at a later date :).
