Final font and specimen poster for Digital Type Design II. Admiral is an extended, regular weight sans-serif with aerodynamic qualities inspired by typography in sci-fi films. With the hope that this project would live beyond the genre, I focused on creating a durable typeface with smooth contours and functional details. Of course I couldn't resist returning to the sci-fi inspiration to celebrate Admiral with a space-themed specimen referencing movie posters.
During the spring semester I designed the uppercase, lowercase, numerals, punctuation and symbols, and accented characters. I will continue developing the Admiral family with multiple weights and someday the oblique styles as well.
