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.
POPESTAR REGULAR — CHARACTER SET
Alternative lowercase 'a': It was the letter 'a' that during a small experiment birthed this typeface. Being the 'mother' character, it features greater customisability.
