Datel Tribute

A hat-tip to the people behind Action Replay

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).

The closest name I could find was Letraset’s Stop although information is scant online although the lack of characters on the fonts made for some creative gap-filling. I’m sure this font style existed before then but I’m drawing a blank - if you know more tweet or email me!

The font works well for titles and is also usable for small runs of text/lists.
