Retro is the future

A retro-futuristic design inspired by the classic Nixie tubes of the 1930′s and onward. In order to create a convincing illustration most letters of the alphabet was created so that each tube could display up to 5 letters, resulting in an independent typeface, the Nixie-D. The 2D-illustration was created solely with Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop / Illustrator) with custom brushes and patterns to create a photo-realistic feel.
