Vault Alarm

Vault Alarm

Dan Cederholm has tried his hand at font design, and the result is delightful!

Inspired by the New England bank vault alarm box, Vault Alarm is a "chunky, quirky, display sans-serif font". The font is all-caps with numbers, basic punctuation, and a few bonus characters.

For the curious, the vault alarm works a lot like public fire alarm boxes. It is a box mounted to the outside wall of a bank. Should the vault be burglarized, the box would transmit an alarm, making the theft evident to the public and police (hopefully).

Note: Dan has a whole collection of fonts, which are every bit as excellent.
