Textus Font for Good Films and New Screen Titles

Posted in Dark Fonts, Dark Typography with tags , , on October 28, 2014 by darkvotum

Textus font is a commercial typeface designed for films and screen titles. The font falls in the Lyric Modernist category of the 20th Century with a Roman influence, which makes it ideal for dramatic films.

With a humanist axis, the characters are designed with pen-formed serifs and terminals, creating a very sharp and legible font for main film titles and a beautiful modulated stroke. The digital font is available for Windows and Mac platforms.

The font can be purchased with a license extension, if your film is for public distribution. To purchase the font and license, you can use my PayPal’s account and use credit cards. For more information, contact me – darkvotum@gmail.com

Below, I’ve included the alphabet and font features for your review and consideration.

Day-Glo Font – Psychedelic School Typography

Posted in Dark Designs, Dark Fonts, Dark Typography with tags , , on October 26, 2014 by darkvotum

Day-Glo Font is my new commercial design font, inspired by the fluorescent painting created in 1960’s. The font is ideal for display posters that experiment with new typography applications. It is designed as a great visual exercise, in which the designer can use the font to wide, contract, distortion, stretch visual lines.

The font’s influence comes from graphics from Art Noveau, strongly advertised in Europe, and later, during the Vietnam war and the psychedelic hippie movement originated in Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco.  If you live the 60’s, you probably saw an array of publicity and advertisement applied to music concerts, anti-war statements, and fashion shows issues.

Still the impact of this experimental typography continues and great modern designers use a new form of psychedelia with vibrant colors because Day-Glo font is a cool font that creates an strong impact in covers, billboards, invitations, comics magazines, and even personal wedding presentations.

Day-Glo font is sold with professional kerning and in scalable vector sizes. You can purchase the license using PayPal’s credit cards and I will send you the font to your email directly in both versions, Windows and Mac platforms. For more information, please contact me – darkvotum@gmail.com

Below, I’ve included the alphabet typeface and a design sample of Day-Glo font for your review and consideration. Enjoy it!

Graf Noir Font – Stanley Kubrick Vintage Movie Typography

Posted in Dark Fonts, Dark Typography, Production Advertising with tags , , , on August 9, 2014 by darkvotum

Vintage movie typography is a great way to learn how movie studios and film directors envisioned the character of the film. Unfortunately, that art is gone and most of contemporary films include very thick fonts that do not relate to the presentation in the screen titles.

Graf Noir font is a new commercial font inspired in Stanley Kubrick’s movie, Killer’s Kiss (1955). At that time, fonts were very artistic with thick and thin lines, mostly serif for film noir.

I have reproduced my own version of the screen titles should your project is a film noir, fashion show or simply looking for a very aesthetic and elegant font. You can purchase a license for this font and delivery, using PayPal’s credit cards. For more details, please contact – darkvotum@gmail

Thanks for considering my professional work.

Airspace Technical Font – NASA Flight Deck Typography

Posted in Dark Fonts, Dark Typography, Strategy Branding with tags , , , on March 20, 2014 by darkvotum

Reading at the NASA Flight Deck Documentation report (1992), I realized there are very few fonts applied in the design of digital cockpits panels and technical documentation and most of the fonts used in aircrafts, shuttles, checklists, maps and airport charts have graphical deficiencies.

I decided to get in the design task of producing a single Western technical font that I called Airspace. The font is a commercial typeface and consists of the following features:

  1. A sans-serif font non-geometrical with non-square format more legible than font with serifs
  2. Improved legibility in distance and light conditions
  3. Documentation text with uppercase and lowercase letters
  4. X-height and height-to-width- ratio of 5:4 for front and distortioned position in optimal reading
  5. Vertical spacing (leading) between lines no smaller than 25%, preferably 33%
  6. Horizontal spacing (kerning) at 25% of the overall size
  7. Characters designed for digital cockpits panels
  8. Improved non-optimal conditions for colors and small size fonts
  9. Font designed considering middle-aged and elderly operators
  10. Font design for high-risk industries such as nuclear power, process control, military, maritime, and aviation

Below, I have included samples of my Airspace font for your review and consideration. The samples include a character map, sample of a cockpit panel and a sample of a checklist manual.

The commercial font can be purchased with a limited license using PayPal’s credit cards. For more information, on how to pay for the font and license, please contact me directly at darkvotum@gmail. Any comments are welcome from professionals involved in the mentioned industries.
