About NaN Holo

NaN Holo is a replicant-inspired fleshy neo-grotesk font in proportional and monospaced styles. The font is built on an industrial frame with biological forms disrupting an otherwise tensely machined flow. The question is: does it pass your Voight-Kampff test?

With its rectangular counters and round curves, Holo applies a construction rarely seen in the neo-grotesk genre. This novelty gives it an atemporal spirit that makes you wonder if you are peering at something either very new or that you have known for ages. A « it was meant to exist » vibe.

The strength of Holo lies in its surprising versatility. When used large the tension between its voluntarily inconsistent rounded and squared details brings surprise, character and warmth. But when used small, all those details blend together in the background and Holo becomes a quieter sturdy work-horse, allowing a fluid reading experience while keeping a healthy amount of personality. But Holo’s personality doesn’t only rely on details. A key element of this family is its proportions. With wider-than-usual capitals, it gives a subtle and confident breath to the text rhythm which shows in its comfortable yet lively regularity.

If Holo does one thing, it’s delivering. It’s reliable, human, original but not loud. Think about your favorite hairdresser that you’ve known for years. Holo is the AI recommended automaton which replaced your hairdresser without you even noticing.

Doubling down on the machine side of the family, Holo Mono is the code running in the machine mind. But one will be surprised to find life and humanity even in this code, because what are machines if not images of ourselves, and what are we if not images of God?

Additional widths (Narrow, Condensed, X Condensed and Compressed) and scripts (surprise, mystery) are in production and are free to anyone purchasing a full family license in any <size> when ready.

In 1970, Peter Schmidt created “The Thoughts Behind the Thoughts”, a box containing 55 sentences letterpress printed onto disused prints that accumulated in his studio, which is still in Eno’s possession. Eno, who had known Schmidt since the late 1960s, had been pursuing a similar project himself, which he had handwritten onto a number of bamboo cards and given the name “Oblique Strategies” in 1974. There was a significant overlap between the two projects, and so, in late 1974, Schmidt and Eno combined them into a single pack of cards and offered them for general sale. The set went through three limited edition printings before Schmidt suddenly died in early 1980, after which the card decks became rather rare and expensive. Sixteen years later software pioneer Peter Norton convinced Eno to let him create a fourth edition as Christmas gifts for his friends (not for sale, although they occasionally come up at auction). Eno’s decision to revisit the cards and his collaboration with Norton in revising them is described in detail in his 1996 book A Year with Swollen Appendices.
