Welcome to the Future...
Dramatics aside, QUANTUM is a visual display typeface designed to convey one cyberpunk future out of many.
It is intended to be built as a monospaced font (however, spacing errors occurred, and it is a faux-monospace as a result), made on a 9x10 pixel grid out of a personal fascination with the vision of the cyberpunk future according to the 90s and a desire to capture the "spirit" of the original Sony PlayStation. One of the leading sources of inspiration is the work by The Designers Republic (tDR).
This typeface not only features Latin characters, but also Cyrillic, Greek, and even a few Coptic characters for good measure (in hopes of easing in the old world into the future)
This is originally inspired by a typeface i've seen on a wedding/congratulation card. In the process of crafting the glyphs it turned out more and more like a font, perfect for horror, goth emo stuff. A little bit as you know them from Tim Burton movies/introductions. So this is why it's name is an homage to Tim Burton and his morbid, ingenious and unique way of visualising movies. Enjoy! Harr, harr... It also contains some ligatures (which i integrated into the sample) and alternative glyphs. Like for example an "o" without thedecoration in the middle... Alternative "a" = @ Alternative "z" = $ Alternative "o" = % Alternative "j" = ] Double "t" = # Double "f" = | Double "l" = _
Guess what movie I just watched again? A mostly accurate font inspired by the movie "Total Recall" (1990). Consider it an experiment in using the 2x vertical filter.
**2017 08-13 Update** Taking advantage of the expanded brick-stacking minimums, I have modified the following glyphs: A a R r S s Z z 2 7 ? _ +
The diagonal leg of the R is still not quite correct; further attempts might be made in the future.
I have also removed the 2x vertical filtering. We are back to good old 1x filtering now.
