Client: FOX NEXT
Art direction: Matthew Britton & Steven Leff
FoxNext games wanted a blocky, modern font family for their Marvel Strike Force game, with a touch of comic-bookiness to it.
We went back and forth whether to have angles or not on the hooks of letters like C and S. We decided on angled up, which gives it a distinctive flair.
They also requested a “less stylized and more readable” companion family for large blocks of text. And so the “Text” family was born.
In 2020, I expanded Space Race into the superfamily HYPERSPACE RACE for my first release as Swell Type.
