Font Apud Display designed by Dino dos Santos in 2010 at DSType Foundry.
The italics are really well made in this pack, reminds me of the great Quadraat font created by Fred Smeijers between 1992 and 2011.
You will also find the Apud Text if you need long readable text between 6 and 14 points.
With its refined high contrast and sharpness, Apud Display has the vitality and rigor of modern typefaces, every time you need your display setting to shine.5 hearts

The electronic/cinematic/soul tag fits well.

The work spans disciplines, continents, and millennia: it’s part art and part science, has an innate environmentalism, and is underscored by an existential incursion into Deep Time. I begin at ‘year zero,’ and look back from there, exploring the living past in the fleeting present.
