Alpha Midnight, a 1969 typeface designed by Hiroshi Yamashita, was the base and inspiration that would be modified so heavily that it ended up becoming its own unique typeface.
This type treatment is bold and bright enough to sustain legibility over the footage it lives on. And, of course, it stays true to the 60’s vibe we were after. The stencil also gives it a military quality that feels very appropriate for a caper war film.
For a secondary typeface, Garage Gothic, by Frere-Jones Type, worked as a perfect pairing for our stenciled letterforms. A tall sans-serif with quite a bit of grit and personality, inspired by tickets given at parking garages in NYC.
