Typefaces reflecting the music scene in the digital age share an extreme
quality that communicates not only the technological aspect of the genre
but also its high energy. Typefaces used to communicate this genre often
push the envelope in terms of legibility, exploring extremes of width,
both condensed and extended, as well as the basic structure of the draw-
ings. Simplification and the loss of junctures or strokes is common.
Techno typefaces often attempt to reflect the idea of electronic media in
their drawing, using bitmaps, pixels, and other modular logic to convey
a sense of the digital. Decorative inclusions, such as large dots, graphic
shapes, and inlines, are also common among techno typefaces.
Fast and frenetic, electrical and industrial, the techno-influenced
designs of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries buzz with
high-voltage, luminescent combinations of color and typographic design
that push conventional boundaries aside. Deriving from the rich palette
of the video screen and the drawing capabilities of the computer, colors
and type forms in the techno world are radical and dynamic.
