GLD Display






  • Relying on a mixture of rap, brass instruments, and a quirky attitude on stage, Green Light District needed a typeface that speaks the very sound that is played on stage. The solution was to create a display font that fits their unique style.

    The finished design features exaggerated arms and legs, while the varied contrast among the letters translates the specific quality of sound of the band. The overall squeezed appeal of the words, broken with occasional, completely round characters communicates the diverse pacing of rhythm that is found Green Light District’s songs.

    In 2020 GLD Display won gold in the Young Creatives category in Finland’s most significant creative design competition, Vuoden Huiput.
