Popestar is a modular display typeface with a blackletter feel, inspired by my love for blackletter typefaces and heavy metal music and a visit to a Japanese ramen bar.

The typeface is aesthetically linked to various references coming both from heavy metal album lettering and Japanese calligraphy.

The name Popestar is both a reference to an EP of the same name by Ghost - a Swedish metal band whose logo lettering and music inspired the mood and feel of the typeface, and an allusion to the typeface's serious looking but informal characteristics.
