RMT Kill screen is a conceptually driven display typeface designed as an identity system for the association Radix, a Swiss social service working with young people dealing with drug abuse. Radix has a web portal providing all the information on the damages that drug abuse can cause. The former communication guidelines always used the Pacman character as a metaphor of the use and abuse of drugs in that it plays and swallows them having fun but eventually it becomes a ghost.
RMT Kill screen was designed to embody the spirit of the arcade game in a contemporary way. Being playful, young but mindful of the serious subject matter. We introduced the Pacman and ghosts as glyphs and special characters as part of the typeface.
