I’m in love with this game. Dark, macabre, beautiful and with ample use of Futura Bold.

Futura: 1927

I have to keep reminding myself that Futura is nearly 90 years old. I see it popping up often in ‘fan art’ posters. While I think it has aged remarkably well — and I do love it — I have to admit that it is quite harsh. 

Not as warm as successive geometrics like William Addison Dwiggins’ Metro (1927 onwards), Tobias Frere-Jones’ momentous, Gotham (2000) or Jos Buivenga’s Museo Sans.

I remember setting my thesis in it — I’m still not sure that was a good move.

Much love for one of my favorite typefaces.
