PHOTONIA (Pro) - 70s future retro style

70s style reverse contrast sans with future retro aesthetics, perfect for projects with a vintage sci-fi, space age or computer theme.

This is actually a refurbished and extended version of an older FontStruction I did back in 2019. The original PHOTONIA was a cool looking little work, but didn't quite made the most of its design concept. Inexperience and poor design decisions had led to inconsistencies and other flaws throughout the font. Besides those it also had a small character set that mostly consisted out of the basic Latin block and bare essential symbols & punctuation marks. But imo it still had quite an interresting retro vibe and the potential to be more. So I decided to give the old project some well deserved refreshments.

First I started eliminating the inconsistencies that were present in the older work, than I continued polishing and re-design / modify several characters hoping to create a greater overall unity to the entire piece. Once I was fully satisfied with this renewed improvements it was time to build and expand the character set towards a more complete lingual and typographic support.

➜ ⚠ Previous Version:
 ▶ Basic Latin only
 ▶ Minimal kerning

➜ ⚠ What's New Inside:
 ▶ Additional Latin and accented Latin
 ▶ Diacritics
 ▶ Many glyph alternative forms
 ▶ Additional symbols and punctuation marks
 ▶ Horizontal box drawing (page deviders)
 ▶ Typographical symbols
 ▶ Ornamental printer's characters
 ▶ 1680 stored kerning pairs
