Vibro (2011)

2011 Selection

Designed by Max Phillips at Signal Type Foundry

Categories: Typeface

Industry: Commercial

An obsessive and probably excessive exercise in Sixties nostalgia and chromatic vibration, Vibro is constructed entirely of arcs, circles, and straight lines. The exigencies of pattern-making have been permitted to trump those of classical construction. In the interest of greater stripiness, counters have been dispensed with. A full range of diacritics has been mortised into the bodies of the letters, enabling Vibro to trample basic standards of legibility in over 130 languages. Winner of a 2012 TDC Certificate of Excellence.
