Hopeless Diamond OT(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’. Please note, open type features such as stylistic alternates are not visible in Test Drive. For more information regarding open type click here.
