Dropout Banner

Flashback fonts

Flashback is a trippy throwback concept comprising three psychedelic all caps type styles. All three fonts - Dropout, Rough Diamond and Thorny, evolved from experimenting with a cubic template devised as the basis for the retro display type series.

I experimented with numerous shapes initially to see which forms lent themselves best to the negative spaces forming the characters. Although many interesting variants are possible within this context, these three 'tripped out' best from the several options tried.
