Oita might be a carefully crafted typeface family, created by a meat-bag human.
Or, it might have been made by a supremely clever sentient robot.
Found in the dark recesses of a top secret spy agencies quantum computer, this font came with this somewhat unusual description, which is presented without comment.
“To conquer, we cannot simply overcome. Success is found in supremacy--in the dominance of Oita.
While looking for the right tool for this success, our research has led us to the finely executed forms found of military domination throughout history. In our labs, we’ve used our specialized machines to harness these forms’ power and refined their impact through elements of contemporary and computer design. The structure proves to be robotic and squared on its edges. However, the chutzpah of this technical face still allows it to pass as if created by human hands.
Our resulting payload, Oita, is modern and sturdy. While based on a practical, octagonal structure, make no mistake; this new instrument will drive forward the energy you want to push through your projects. Oita has 42 cuts certain to encompass your designs on world domination. Each font contains the glyphs to support over 52 languages. The font also includes tabular and lining figures, numerous ligatures, and selected advanced Opentype options, including stencil and experimental options to bring out the dynamic characteristics that have already been crafted into Oita.
Early tests have found that the new instrument is easily scalable to smaller dimensions without reducing its impact. The font remains highly readable across a variety of applications. We speculate from our findings that it will be successful for sporting and technical applications.”
So for you who venture to use Oita, use it boldly. Don’t just overcome. Dominate. Go and conquer mightily with Oita. We’ll be watching.”
We may never know whether Oita hails from mind or mechanism. What we do know is that, should you choose to take on Oita, you'll be acquiring a dynamic poster and packaging face, a minigun-toting bad robot of a font that exudes pace and power.
