About the face: Yesterday NASA announced a new finding. Missions to the moons of Jupiter and Saturn provided new details about icy oceans and potential “ocean worlds” in our solar system. “This is the closest we’ve come, so far, to identifying a place with some of the ingredients needed for a habitable environment,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate.
After taking a moment to let that sink in, I figured what better way to celebrate than with a free font that gives a nod to the 1975 NASA logo. Nasalization was designed by Ray Larabie and is available in six weights as well as italics. Larabie describes the typeface as an “ultramodern sans serif,” that is compatible with OpenType applications. Nasalization comes with a desktop license that allows personal and commercial use. However if you’d like to embed the font in an app, ebook or online, you’ll have to purchase a license through Typodermic Fonts.
