Computing 60s

Sixties advertising for computers loved this style

I designed this font back in 2006 in BASIN as a tribute to the advertisements for computers in the late 60s and early 70s.

No doubt inspired by the magnetic OCR style fonts it deviated by replacing the unsightly blobs with bold sections that ran to the nearest edge to give it a smoother feel. The most likely actual typeface used for these ads was probably Countdown

This font works great for titles and small runs of text and at a stretch you can use it even for low-density text adventures.
