New Typeface Nixin
0

Hi Everyone,

I'm working in a new typeface that is taking all my waking hours away!

Inspiration comes from nixin tubes,

The basic shapes are very simple, so I wonder if there's already another typeface like it around?

Is it a go? Critics and ideas are always welcome =)

Well, the field of geometric typefaces like this is quite ‘grazed’.

‘The Northern Block’ offers several similar typefaces (of rather poor quality as far as I can tell from the samples):

A professional take on this ‘naïve’ style is Helsinki by Ludwig Übele:

Hi Joerg,

Thanks for the hints! I still think it is different enough from those, so that's good news!
