This 1985 poster for the movie Future-Kill has a logo set in Orbit-B. The K was modified by the designer, probably to better distinguish it from H. Movie credits are set in Futura.

The 1980s were an era of excellent hand-drawn movie posters, and this design is no exception. The poster art was drawn by renowned artist H.R. Giger, an artist famous for creating the xenomorph, the alien species that oozes at the center of the Alien film franchise. His other-worldly artistic style is once again on display on this striking movie poster.

Unfortunately, this artwork is wasted on a terrible, poorly reviewed film. From Wikipedia:

Future-Kill (released in the UK as Night of the Alien) is a 1985 comedy science fiction-horror film about a group of fraternity boys who are hunted by mutants in a futuristic city. The film was directed by Ronald W. Moore, and stars Edwin Neal, Marilyn Burns and Gabriel Folse.
