  • British design studio Studio Disjointed has created a gritty typeface called ‘Cable Thief’ that is inspired by the overhead power cables of the rail network in the UK. 

    The design references the widespread problem of cable theft, a common occurrence in the UK that impacts on the rail network and its commuters. The dilapidated font features cables and pulleys holding it together to prevent it from collapsing. 

    Studio Disjointed designs bespoke typography that allows a strong and clear direction needed for a range of outcomes, from logo design through to print and editorial. 
     
    Below are images of all of the uppercase characters and the numbers one to five. Along with several examples of the typeface being used across examples of poster designs. 
     
    The work will soon be available as prints / T-shirts / stickers through the Studio Disjointed Facebook Page - https://www.facebook.com/1StudioDisjointed.
