    With this poster — which I designed as a promotional A5 flyer to be sent to record labels — I wanted to reach the full scope of music in these days. On one hand the analog music shown here by the illustration of the turntable and the wire, and on the other hand the dematerialized music expressed by the typefaces.

    These two fonts were published in 1988. Exit was designed by Fabrizio Schiavi and you can see the relationship to Neville Brody’s work as he mentioned himself. Here, with the slightest change of color hue we can highlight the geometric serifs to get the desired pixelish effect. Oblong, designed by Rudy VanderLans and Zuzana Licko (Emigre), is quite similar but offers better readability at small sizes.

      The Neville Brody 80s/90s thing is rarely referenced, which is funny with our flashback culture in the US.
