    Launched in summer 2020, Nique – la radio (“Fuck – the radio”) is both a webradio station and a podcast label. From nique.radio (translated):

    Nique – la radio has one conviction: microcultures and subcultures are porous, and influence society as a whole. Nique does not consider any subject as secondary, as niche, or as illegitimate, and will stick its nose wherever there’s culture.

    Simon Sek designed the identity and website for “the badass audio media, the podcast brat”. For the logo, he used the original style of Nonplus by James Edmondson of OH no Type Co. LTypI fans might bemoan the missed opportunity to use another recent OH no release named Swear. I’d argue that Nonplus is a formidable choice for swearwords, too. With its extreme weight, the bold semi-connecting script lends itself to visualizing graphic language. And its filled-in counters that hamper legibility a wee bit are the typographic equivalent of muttering something under one’s breath. A first version of Nonplus was made available in June 2019 via Future Fonts. It’s currently at v0.2 which added a light monoline style. The accompanying monospaced typeface family is likewise a Future Fonts release: ISO by Scribble Tone serves for all text, in several of its six weights.
