REVOLT TWO

Introducing:

Automatic cycling of 4 alternates of each letter • Automatic cycling of 4 alternates of each letter •

Inspired by type crafted from masking tape, each letter is instinctively composed of individual strips, showcasing visible tears for an intentionally subversive, handmade appearance.

Origin

2016—2020

OC REVOLT was a variable display font made for the protest graphics of the NYC based Non-Complicit project that ran during the T*#@p Brexit era. Initially Non-Complicit made guerrilla type with masking tape applied in situ or directly to silk screens before we made a scalable digital version.

The Sequel

OC REVOLT II enhances the subversive human made aesthetic while reducing the need of human intervention.

Embracing urban aesthetics and human imperfections, the heights, widths, spacing, and baseline positions of the characters vary, providing a dynamic visual experience that emphasizes speed of communication over laborious craft.

It adds 4 versions of each letter of the alphabet along with 2 versions of double-letter ligatures. Each automatically cycle to prevent visual repetition, manual adjustment, and the mechanical uniformity often associated with machine-made fonts. What remains constant is the consistent width of the tape, creating a cohesive narrative as if each character emerged from the same roll.

Get all of the styles and formats in one package with the Otherwhere EOAW! font license.

OTF, WOFF, WOFF2, TTF (Variable) for use in all media.

Specimen Sheet

And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense.

Reference

The three bar ‘E’ in the font is a tribute to the writing style of graffiti artist SAMO© (primarily associated with the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat).

SAMO© was a tag used on the streets of New York City from 1977 to early 1980. It accompanied short phrases, in turns poetic and sarcastic, mainly painted on the streets of downtown Manhattan.

A crown is also included in the glyph set as Basquiat frequently used the symbol in his artwork to depict himself as a king, portray his great ambition, or acknowledge the brilliance of other artists that influenced him.
