About the typeface :
AntithesisMake the type bigger.
Not 7, 14, 22. Not 84, not 144. Push the limit, reduce to the maximum. A Slab Serif, a connected script and a heavy Sans. Three styles to fit them all. Distant humanist relatives, yet a family.
Tune up your circuits, check out your chips. Colors of light, pulses of sound. All goes to one. Listen to the white noise in your ears. Strobe, laser, beams.
Interpolation is so ’90s.
