Lapse

You might not think that's cricket, and it's not. It's motor racing.

Formula 1 is a fantastic exhilarating sport and I was very much a fan in my youth. Seeing the Formula 1 docudrama on Netflix with my kids got us into it again and I very much appreciated their latest logo and typeface.

As always whether I could do this justice in an 8x8 is the challenge. Given that I already have Orbiter and Submerged as very open wide rounded-corner typefaces whether it would be unique another was another concern. It’s quite a subtle shift between the two but the extra curves and that distinctive lower-case “a” make it almost worth it but when combined with a bunch of weights and widths it makes for a distinctive set when you need some variance.

It works well for titles, lists, and info screens. Large blocks of prose can be difficult to read without fine-tuning the spacing with a custom renderer or using one of the narrower widths.
