Hopeless Diamond(2009)

Hopeless Diamond is a contemporary display type inspired by the dimensionality of 19th Century carved lettering and the radical forms of the B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber and the F-117 Nighthawk Stealth Strike Aircraft. The typeface itself contains three different styles, each with an italic and an alternate character set that can be used to generate a number of interesting permutations. The name was derived from the somewhat derisory term the test pilots gave an early model of the F-117. Due to its unusual structure and departure from aerodynamic doctrine they referred to it as the ‘Hopeless Diamond’. Hopeless Diamond is also available in opentype formats as Hopeless Diamond OT.
