This typeface is based on the theme decay. It references the idea of how things decay when they are forgotten and so parts of each of the letters are missing. This links to the idea it is based on the courier font which was used in the typewriter. It shows a link that once something is forgotten e.g. technology such as a type writer it starts to decay. This typeface also has reference to the ideas of the bacteria that cause decay and so hence called prokaryotes which is the term used to describe this bacteria. This font can be used as a display font for many things including gig posters etc.


Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Prokaryotes” is now a Top Pick.

Great design and decay effect. Your reference to prokaryotes and bacteria suggest solid scientific background. I would love to see a slightly less tattered, old typewriter version too. 10/10

My font is readable and supports many languages, if small caps connect, add a few spaces.
