Font inspired by the Neo-Noir genre of movies like L.A. Confidential, Drive, Blade Runner, as well as taking inspiration from older Noir movies such as Sunset Boulevard, The Night of the Hunter, and Laura
Welcome to the Future...
Dramatics aside, QUANTUM is a visual display typeface designed to convey one cyberpunk future out of many.
It is intended to be built as a monospaced font (however, spacing errors occurred, and it is a faux-monospace as a result), made on a 9x10 pixel grid out of a personal fascination with the vision of the cyberpunk future according to the 90s and a desire to capture the "spirit" of the original Sony PlayStation. One of the leading sources of inspiration is the work by The Designers Republic (tDR).
This typeface not only features Latin characters, but also Cyrillic, Greek, and even a few Coptic characters for good measure (in hopes of easing in the old world into the future)
This is a work in progress.
After making Ticketmeister, I got curious about the idea of 35mm film glyphs. I wanted to see how accurately the shape and proportions of the film could be recreated with Fontstruct bricks. I used a 1px = 1 square = 1mm conversion, and think I've nailed the original film look. It's symmetrical, so one glyph in isolation will look as if it were spliced out.
"Space" lacks borders, so it can be used to show a continuous reel - useful for enlarging and making imagery with.
