Platelet typeface

Platelet is based directly on characters and figures found on the car license plates in California. Since its commercial release by Emigre in 1994, Platelet has sold well and appeared in places as diverse as The New York Times and the soles of Camper shoes. Critically acclaimed, it was also added to London’s Conran Foundation Collection in 1996. Read the full story of the typeface.
