As mentioned in my previous release post, my work on Digital Disco was split off into two fonts: the aforementioned groovy, chunky typeface (“Digital Disco”) and another more “standard” geometric sans serif (“Quadrunde”).
It’s finally time to release Quadrunde!
There isn’t a whole lot to say about this font, as its design is fairly self-explanatory. Sometimes designing something “normal” can be a pretty meditative experience! I just wanted to put something together using the same formula most geometric sans serifs use (ie: Futura, Century Gothic, Gotham, Twentieth Century, etc.).
Geometric fonts are always so satisfying to look at in terms of rhythm and overall balance, since everything is so uniform. This is especially true for words that have multiple letters of the same relative “shape.”
Of course this also means that text containing words with multiple letters of the same relative shape can get hard to read! But sometimes that just makes geometric sans more fun.
I’m not expecting this font to be terribly popular, but I’m pleased with how it turned out. I think it would be a great addition to any project that needs something pixelated, but wants to keep things fairly classic instead of straying too far with a particular design.
