M74

M74 — (Messier 74; NGC 628)


 
A spiral galaxy in the Pisces constellation. A retrofuturistic serif typeface, inspired by classic science fiction.
 


 

M74 is a typeface designed to feel at home on the cover of ’70s sci-fi novels, or the posters of optimistic space operas from the subsequent decades. It’s simultaneously clunky and finessed, with broad, inelegant strokes complimented by delicate ink traps and serif endings.
 


 

The typeface remains unfinished, but I intend to rework it for eventual release.
