Neonoir is an homage to neon lettering craftsmanship of the mid 20th century. The beautiful futuristic grace of wall-sized bent-glass hand-writing is destilled into a three-weighted connected monoline script.
The shapes are derived from neon signage on “Währinger Gürtel Kino”, one of the few remaining porn cinemas on Vienna’s Gürtel. Its Slim and Bold weights are formal monoline scripts, while the medium weight mimics the rough edges of ink on paper. Neonoir is available as Open Type font that features alternate endings and lots of Ligatures.
