Modulator. A heavy sans typeface, inspired by afrojet's Thunderball and similar fonts. Recomended for large sizes, like headers for posters. It's basically just a heavyweight version of Mocha.

Clone of Thunderball. When wanting to make this font lighter, I realised it made the font look rugged. But I liked it, so I stayed with it. This is a clone of Thunderball

When I saw this beautiful fontstruction by Afrojet, I could not resist and had to make one for myself.
Here is how to use it:
1. Make sure kerning is set to metrics
2. Type your text in capitals
3. Pick a colour for the letters and lower the opacity.
4. Copy-Paste your text and place it on top of the other.
5. Change the case of the top text from uppercase to lowercase.
6. Pick a second colour and lower the opacity again to make the colours blend.

A tribute to Josef Albers: inadvertently inspired by saberrider and afrojet.
This font totally happened by accident. Recently, saberrider created steep, which uses a 2.0 x 1.11 filter setting to smoothly blend the quarter-circle bricks into the triangles. After saberrider created his experimental variable scale fontstruction, it lead me to revisit an abandoned work I did from last year that was done in a similar scale. After getting over the initial disgust of looking at the dismal failure, I started tweaking. Then I decided to tweak the letters instead. It became apparent that I could create a stencil type font that also looked like Josef Alber's font. Coincidentally, Saberrider also has a variation with fontstract,
and of course, that Stewf guy has his own family of Leaflets. ;-) Afrojet's sessions came into play in creating some of the letter forms, especially the numerals. The final filter setting became 1.638 x 1.08, which created a nice fusion of the curved and triangular bricks, but was also naturally inclined to necessitate the vertical divide on each glyph. The rest flowed rather easily from there. Here's to more happy accidents. =)
The sample is also a tribute to Alber's color theory, showing the names in identical colors, which, when juxtaposed over contrasting colors tricks the eye into thinking the bottom name is darker than the top.
The following Josef Albers quote can relate to all things creative, like fontstructing, not just color:
"It should be clear by now that our way of studying color does not start with the past - neither with works of the past nor with its theories.
As we begin principally with the material, color itself, and its action and interaction as registered in our minds, we practice first and mainly a study of ourselves.
Thus, we replace looking backward by looking first at ourselves and our surroundings, and replace retrospection with introspection."
- Josef Albers
