Mr Robot was designed in 2012 for a book about robot design. The book was supposed to be the third volume in our non-fiction series written for Znak (along with “Tu jesteśmy”, “Zjedz to sam”), but it was cancelled before we wrote and drew more than 10 pages. There are three ways to use Mr Robot: 1. You can align three text frames with same text but with different colours and font styles (Regular, Shadow 1 or Shadow 3 and Shadow 2)… 2. …or with ALLinONE font style, selecting a different OpenType Stylistic Sets (set 1 is like Shadow 1, set 2 like Shadow 2 and set 3 like Shadow 3). This works great, but we don’t like having unnecessary text frames in our layouts, so we added a third option: 3. Use Contextual Alternates OpenType feature. You just need Mr Robot ALLinONE style and only one text frame. First, make sure that Contextual Alternates function is off. Type every character three times (RRROOOBBBOOOTTT), select colours for each letter (first letter of every three is a side shadow, second is bottom shadow and third is a front of the dimensional letter). When everything is set, just turn Contextual Alternates back on. Styles and alignment will be set automatically. Check out the Users Manual for a visual explanation. This method also works with web fonts. You can buy it on MyFonts.
