Everything about Softmachine - the rounded terminals, the bold weight, the letter forms and proportions - is designed with one objective: to create a uniform distance between letter strokes, both within and between characters. This is achieved by the shape, spacing and kerning of letters, and by using the Contextual Alternates feature of OpenType to control adjacent glyph combinations. The typographic effect is a remarkably novel form of text color. Also included: an alternate stylistic set.
