"The inspiration for this monospaced sci-fi typeface family was a scene from the movie 'Bladerunner' where Harrison Ford's character enhances a photograph on some kind of computer device. The number code on the bottom of that device's screen was the basis for Monolith. During the process I've reworked the characters several times, so that its not merly a copy of the characters from that film scene, but rather an original design inspired by a few numbers and upper case letters. Monolith is dedicated to the talents of Ridley Scott, one of my favorite film makers."
