Digital Disco – New font!

I was playing around with the idea of making a round font (as in a geometric sans serif, along the lines of Futura) but somewhere along the way I had pushed things so far they started to look… well, pretty groovy! I decided to split the idea of making a standard geometric sans serif into a separate font (Quadrunde) and take this design to funkytown.

Normally when creating an alphabet I break my own design “rules” in order to maintain legibility, but I played a bit looser with this one, since let’s face it… this isn’t the sort of thing that should ever be used for big chunks of text anyway.

I actually began work on the first version of Digital Disco just after starting Alkhemikal, and finished the first version before completing Alkhemikal, but as I was testing I began to wonder if I should make a lighter version as well… So, I did.

Honestly, I think at 100% size Digital Disco Thin is almost unreadable, but considering that most “Ultra Light” fonts suffer from the same issue, I don’t think it’s that unreasonable. The most important thing is that Digital Disco Thin complements the base version, and that’s all you really need from an additional style!

It’s definitely a niche sort of design, but I hope someone out there finds this typeface useful! Please get in touch if you use it in something (game, app, etc) as I’d love to see.
