few years ago I needed to devise some letterforms
for an assignment I had for Hershey's Chocolate. The
design of Powerstation Block was the direct
outgrowth of those letterforms. When I initially
decided to flesh out this "chocolate chunk" of a
typeface into a family of usable fonts, I felt that
the next in the family should be one in which the
illuminated facets became more dominant—giving it a
lighter feel—and so PowerStation Wedge was born.
Doing a straight, solid version and then a thick,
outlined version followed by wide versions of all of
the above seemed only natural.
But why stop there? I wanted to give this extremely graphic display font even more flexibility and usefullness by adding a two color capability. This was achieved by creating "layerable" versions of the four faceted designs; i.e. PowerStation Block Low, which is the base solid font, and Powerstation Block High, which contains the highlighted facets. By pasting the "High" over the "Low" and colorizing them differently, one can easily achieve virtually limitless color effects.

The PowerStation poster, above, (click

of 18" x 24" limited edition serigraphs I am
creating to celebrate each new font upon its
release. Signed and numbered, this edition is
printed in three colors on heavywieght matte
paper. The posters are sold
through Illogator, and also through the
Font Bros website.
