Another blast from the past. This is Forward. One of my very first (computer) typefaces. It came out in the times of a revolutionizing the concept of fashion just on the break of the new century with weird and witty shapes praised to be the new futurism.
It is far from being a “good” typeface in the sense of correctly connectedcurves and other things, but it made a perfect stand those times being used by some of the major Italian ad agencies. Among others it ornamented the 2000 model agency calendar.
Today we live in a time where throwing out new typefaces in million places over the web has become a normality.
I remember its forms came very spontaneously to me and just as a rockstar maybe, fighting for the rest of his life with his early breaking hit, I always was measured by it by my friends and followers. Today we live in a time where throwing out new typefaces in million places over the web has become a normality, but back in those days it was an awesome and thrilling task to experiment with new alphabet shapes and so it earned its name, I guess.
