Designed by Max Phillips, Vibro is a display font published by Signal Type Foundry.
Roll over, Lance Wyman, and tell Bridget Riley the news. Designed by an old hippy for maximum dazzle, Vibro is an ice cream headache of a typeface which exploits the principles of chromatic vibration to send streams of high voltage through the viewer’s visual cortex. Here the exigencies of pattern-making have been permitted to trump those of classical construction. In the interest of greater stripiness, counters have been dispensed with. For this newly expanded version, we’ve added to the ruckus with a full lower case and a selection of dingbats. A comprehensive range of diacritics has been mortised into the bodies of the letters, enabling Vibro to trample basic standards of legibility in over 130 languages. Awarded a TDC Certificate of Excellence.
