Here’s a ‘revivalish’ typeface with a marked vocation for display and branding. While its name cryptically hints at phototypesetting (and maybe also at the symbol of infinity), its design clearly celebrates the eccentricity and visionary spirit of the psychedelic era. Designed by Giulio Galli and available in one heavy weight, with its distinctive design, 8 draws inspiration from Eightball (one of the iconic typefaces published by Visual Graphic Corporation in the 1970s) and also from the quirky letterforms widely used in the psychedelic rock scene since the mid-1960s. To promote such a typeface we couldn’t set up a Jefferson Airplane concert nor a psychedelic session with Timothy Leary. So, we asked the internationally renowned senior DJ Hal 9000 to bring us a taste of those early pioneering years, when youth aspired to universal love and self-consciousness. Finally we’re pleased to share these results with our community: four vibrant lyrics obtained by cutting up some of the most epoch-making songs released between 1964 and 1973 by artists and bands such as The Seeds, Grateful Dead, The 13th Floor Elevators, Chocolate Watchband, The Beatles, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, The Animals, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Steppenwolf, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Iron Butterfly, etc. Enjoy!
