Airstrip Designator

Designator is a custom typeface created for Neasden Control Centre's work on the book series 'Tales from the Dark Side of the City'.


This 6 volume edition documents the work of the
Unknown Fields collective, a "nomadic research studio that undertakes expeditions bearing witness to alternative worlds, alien landscapes, industrial ecologies and precarious wilderness".

The font is inspired by runway markings and the futuristic user interfaces typical of vintage science fiction films.
