ABC Camera

This project is a tribute to all type designers and a declaration of love for a particular font: ABC Camera by Dinamo.

A poster designer like me is highly dependent on fonts available, fonts with different capabilities and personalities, fonts that have appeared during the painstaking work of font designers and typefoundries.

For the first time I came across the letters “with holes” by accident and immediately fell in love with them. It took some time to find out who created them, because the font was not even released yet.

When I received my sample, after the first experiments I decided that I wanted to offer my own interpretation of the font features. Although officially the feature with holes is a reinterpretation of light traps of 60s to make text more readable on TV screens, I feel it more like metal plates or parts of an engineering mechanism (which I matched with the letters).
