Background

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. 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. A full range of diacritics has been mortised into the bodies of the letters, enabling Vibro to trample basic standards of legibility in over 130 languages.

Vibro has been awarded a 2012 Certificate of Excellence by the TDC.
