Tim Burton Fonts

The following are the typefaces used on selected movies by Tim Burton, along with the websites to download each font;

Beetlejuice (1988)

The title and tagline of the movie Beetlejuice appear to have been inspired by a font known as Caslon Antique.

Caslon Antique is an old-fashioned, decorative family of fonts created in 1894 by Berne Nadall. The font is available here: https://fontsinuse.com/typefaces/16044/caslon-antique

Batman (1989)

Batman is considered one of Tim Burton’s most successful movies of all time. That success has a lot to do with the font the movie logo was designed in.

Now, the Batman logo features various elements. Each element seems to have been inspired by different fonts.

The word ‘Batman’ on the logo was most likely custom-made by a graphic designer. It doesn’t conform to any previously known typefaces. However, the words ‘Jack Nicholson’ and ‘Michael Keaton’ are from a font known as Flyer.

Batman Returns (1992)

Just like its 1989 prequel, Batman Returns doesn’t seem to have been designed after any specific typeface.

The closest you can get to the movie’s original logo design is a font known as Danmark URW Bold

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
