Font Submission: Orbitron

ORBITRON, submitted by mattmcinerney

Orbitron is a typeface I’ve been working for the past few months. It’s a geometric sans serif display typeface, potentially an alternative to Eurostile or Bank Gothic. It features 3 weights: Medium, Bold, and Black. It also features some alternate characters including the A, V, W and O seen above. Assuming it gets your stamp of approval, I’d love for it to become a part of The League’s library of open source fonts.


Since we’re trying to make the font submission process to The League more open, we’d like to open the floor and hear what you all think about the font. For the next 7 days, you can help us decide whether or not we should add Orbitron to The League’s font collection by casting a vote. You’re also welcome to post comments and other feedback along with your votes. After the 7 day period, we’ll announce what the outcome is.
To vote, simply leave an answer to the question below in this format: VOTE: YES or VOTE: NO

So what’s your vote for Orbitron?
