Step into a world where technology dances hand in hand with fashion, where the pulse of the 1960s technological optimism beats at the heart of design. Typodermic Fonts presents Idle Race, a typeface that captures the essence of an era when magnetic ink numerals (MICR) were not just a marvel of banking technology but a symbol of cutting-edge style.


Idle Race is a homage to the MICR-inspired typefaces that broke the mold, taking the signature thick rectangular slugs and infusing them with a psychedelic twist. Far from the strict forms of its ancestors, Idle Race plays with fat, soft shapes that contrast vividly against its rigid, electronic origins. This typeface is not just a font; it’s a fashion statement, evoking the true Carnaby Street vibe with every letter typed.


Designed for those who yearn to blend the nostalgia of the swinging 60s with the demands of contemporary design, Idle Race shines brightest in uppercase, though it graciously offers lowercase letters for added versatility. Drawing inspiration from the most way-out MICR fonts like Gemini Computer, Hinge Computer, and Magnetic Ink 7, Idle Race invites designers to break free from the confines of modernity and splash their projects with a dose of retro flair.


Idle Race is more than just a nod to technological themes; it’s a liberation of the typeface genre, inviting it back into the realms of fashion and psychedelia where it truly belongs. Whether you’re branding a cutting-edge fashion line, designing a psychedelic poster, or simply looking to infuse your project with a sense of 60s chic, Idle Race is your ticket to an era of endless creativity and optimism. Embrace the past, present, and future with Idle Race, and let your designs tell a story of innovation, style, and technological wonder.
