About Countdown™ font family

Designed by Colin Brignall in 1965, this somewhat bizarre computer style" typeface was originally released by Letraset. Over the decades, designers have assumed that Countdown was synonymous for almost anything having to do with computers or the first years of hi-technology. Today, though, Countdown is viewed with more of a retro eye. Nevertheless, it is still popular. Countdown looks great on flyers and in pop-art style situations.

Countdown bears similarity to a number of other space age fonts, including Amelia and Data Seventy."
