Illustration and typography by Brazilian artist and vector enthusiast Roberlan Paresqui, mixing late 70s and 80s design aesthetics with a touch of surrealism. Stylistically, Roberlan’s graphic conveys many of the qualities of VHS covers from decades past, but it uses all-new fonts: the chromium type is Matthijs Herzberg’s Bonkus, a contemporary reinterpretation of the 1970s “bent-tube” typefaces like ITC Bauhaus and ITC Ronda, as well as David Jonathan Ross’ condensed sans Bild here used to squeeze as much type into a narrow space as possible for the number 1978.
