I designed this font some time back in the 90s using Artist II as a tribute to the font used by Datel Electronics on their products and ads (they used something less extreme by the time they became a 16-bit Action Replay only shop).
I subsequently found out the font is STOP created in 1971 by Italian type designer Aldo Novares. There is quite a variance as I only had the letters in Datel’s ads to go by and even then it was a bit of a liberal interpretation.
A second “Replay” variant was added in 2019.
The font works well for titles and is also usable for small runs of text/lists.
Can be seen in Astronaut Labyrinth.
My first attempt at this - again in BASIN this year (2019) - looked very much like my other sans so I took a second stab this time at a futuristic one and it came out rather well. The name - Conapt - is taken from Condo and Apartment joined together which has been used in various sci-fi movies as their name for compact housing and it has a distinct Blade Runner feel.
I tweaked the font in 2020 to correct some alignment and style issues (r,x,V etc) and added the semi-bold and bold weights.
This font works well for titles and lists as well as long blocks of futuristic prose.
