Tell us a little about who you are.
I’m a New York based designer, art director, and weekend illustrator raised in Queens, NY. Futurist at heart, and incredibly curious about the creative field. I’ve even recently been playing with 3D software like cinema 4d and some Zbrush.
How did you come up with the idea to create a new font and how did you execute?
My initial idea was to create a font with a heavily mechanized, industrial feel. I executed by going back and watching the things that inspired me to make it in the first place; Evangelion, Ghost in the Shell, Blade Runner, all of those sexy films.
Any initial designs that were left out?
There was a variant that was too sharp, and a few that were almost completely illegible. Hats off to the letterers and calligraphers out there.
In three words, how would you describe this font?
Big, bold, futuristic.
I recently made a free font inspired by future machinery, and I’d love to share it with you guys, as thanks for being a bunch of badasses.
What was your favorite part of the process?
The final polish was definitely my favorite. Seeing all of the glyphs harmonize made me all giddy.
Can you tell us where you envision this font? Who is it made especially for?
This can definitely be envisioned in sci-fi movies where there is an abundant amount of futuristic UI, HUD, and data designs, or adorned on some unprecedented machine prototype.
And we can download it for free? (Awesome!)
Is there a way we can share our creations with you?
