“Los Angeles, 1979. For three crazy years, under a golden dome that could be seen from space, one flamboyant visionary created a skate rink that became the nexus of Compton and Beverly Hills, disco and punk, young and old, nobody and celebrity. A hedonistic pleasure palace where nobody cared about your race, religion, gender, sexuality, class, or age. It was the ultimate, over-the-top excess. This was Flipper's Roller Boogie Palace.”
For the reopening of this legendary place, Commission asked us to design a one-weight typewriter typeface. One twist only: we also went for some duplexed blackletter alternates!
