Project Description


DRUGX is an emoji extension for the Futura typeface. Inspired by recent developments in the US and Europe to loosen up narcotic regulation laws and the flood of new icons that change the way we communicate in our every day writing language. DRUGX is a humorous take on drug stereotypes and

imagines the way drug dealers and drug users could communicate. The basis for this project were the teachings of philosopher Vilém Flusser and Swiss typeface designer Adrian Frutiger. The inspiration came mainly from gangster movies and rap music.
