    Subaru Gauge cluster font

    I know my Impreza's instrument cluster uses a combo of their custom font for the numbers, plus some form of Futura for labels like km/h, as well as the buttons on the radio area. These numbers here aren't quite as pointed as those of vanilla Futura, but this could be a good starting place. It's also not unprecedented as Futura has been used on instrument clusters from numerous vehicle manufacturers, as well as instrumentation in NASA crafts.
  3. Good point! What was I thinking. The fonts in the image above (though all the different fonts are put to great use in this book!). These display fonts are used throughout the book to tie the aesthetic together. It's two fonts (differences in stroke/diagonal thickness; more obvious characteristics in the 'F' in 'Netflix' vs 'Of'; and the 'S' in 'Events' vs 'Series'; the 'R' in 'Series' vs 'Unfortunate').

    Leitura Display Roman for the W, A and E, Leitura Swash for the first A and the K—though some customization, like the (unfortunate) thickening of the upper arm of the K—has been applied.

    Which Typeface Software Manager for Mac OS?

    Here is their blog posts with tons of user comments: https://www.extensis.com/blog/suitcase-fusion-my-type-of-subscription But as I have said in my review here, while FontExplorer is not a subscription service, you are pretty much in the same boat. If you update your OS and your apps like Creative Cloud, you will also need to keep buying FontExplorer updates to stay compatible.

    InDesign now supports variable fonts

    It would depend on the font: variable fonts can have either continuous or fixed increments along the axes.

    answered Campbell Semi Truck Lettering

    It is called Supabad (2003), by Chuck Davis of Letterhead Fonts, and is only available these days from some sketchy download sites. Do a Google search on “LHF Supabad.”
