Font blog "PalRetron"


Hello, this is Fukushima.

I often introduce new typefaces in "Blog", but as a font story, I will focus on the typefaces that have already been released and introduce them irregularly.

The first one is "PalRetron", which has been a hot topic since its release in July of 2019 (2019), and is now used in anime in Cool.

This article However, the "PalRetron" that I introduced has been used for many books and posters right after its release.

PalRetron is a theme of Western retro and Gothic lolita, and its unique vertical and horizontal drawings give a romantic impression, and it is decorative and glamorous, but it also has a shaded design.
If you use it for the title of light novel, catchphrase, etc., it looks very good! !

We asked Mr. Wataru Saito (chipcodesign), who designed the book "Queen of Ideally-The artificial maiden wants to breed", about the process of using PalRetron and the processing of typefaces!

History of using PalRetron

I like PalRamune originally designed by Akiko Ochi, and I definitely want to use it when PalRetron comes out! I was wondering. However, because the typeface was characteristic, it didn't quite fit the work. When I was "Queen of Idea Lily", it was a mystery work with a dark atmosphere, so I applied PalRetron and it fits the atmosphere of the illustration, so I decided to use it. ..
I often use Tsukushi Antique L Go B used for the author name and subtitle as it gives off an atmosphere.

About typeface processing

Since the artist's paintings are delicate, I make them thinner overall.
In addition, the "queen" is decorated to give it a dignified queen-like appearance, giving it a sense of logo.

A typeface that feels the charm of devilishness

Looking at Palre Roton, I feel the urge to try various characters. I even feel that the characters have magical charm.

"Witch" and "Awakening" are perfect
It is cool to flip black and white
Even "Snow White" can express a horror feeling if it is PalRetron.
