THREE LAWS OF ROBOTICS
A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
The square-ish form and slightly rounded terminals of Quara takes its cues from avant-garde technology and new gadget lust. It began as a design for a custom typeface project. Ultimately the client chose an altogether different design but designer Delve Withrington decided the merit of Quara warranted further development and saw it through to completion.
The omission of portions of strokes near joins was one of several design techniques used in developing glyphs for the purpose of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) by early computers. For the design of Quara, this simplification of form is as much an aesthetic feature as it is evidence of the increasing acceptance of “unconventional” letterforms in the ongoing development of methods to construct visual language.
The compactness of Quara makes it quite useful for headlines and subheads on websites, in games, magazines, brochures, and posters. Quara also maintains a versatility that allows it to perform well for shorter passages at normal text sizes.
(There are 251 glyphs in Quara, but we didn't want to show off too much.)
