Elysium

An abandoned typeface, set for old and worn environments

 

Typeface design



Elysium, derived from Greek mythology, it refers to the concept of the afterlife that developed over time. This refers to the alternate characters that this typeface comes with. This typeface has a low and stern voice with a hint of authority, like a old wise-man found hiding in the forest awaiting to give you knowledge. However, depending on what this typeface is used for, it can also have a creepy, stalker like tone to it if the alternate set is used. 






The function for this typeface is to be used on wooden plank boards placed around the amusement park that has been remodeled. It can also be used as a display typeface for other situations. The alternate set can be used in creepy themes and scenarios as a display font.
