Chromosome

ChromosomeIt hit me one day that the ’60s-vintage labelmaker I found in the back of a drawer might make an interesting display face. I began playing around—squeezing out letters at various pressures, scanning the results, going over the scans in a vector-graphics app. Looked pretty good. To my chagrin, however, I soon after got a glimpse of someone else’s label-tape font. Though modeled after a more modern device, its rocketing popularity prompted me to set Chromosome aside for a year or so. Finally finished it up in late-1995. The full release has light and heavy weights, regular and reversed styles. US$39.
