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).

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.

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