The concept for PTL Attention goes back to the days of my thesis »Type Attack!«. From the beginning the idea was not only to have a display stencil type like PTL Attack, but also to create a more serious companion.
There weren’t any direct influences on the design itself, but of course the concepts of the sans-serif type history was in my mind, and there was a few typefaces I consulted from time to time, like Gill Sans, Interstate or Emigre’s Base.
To handle the kerning with a big amount of glyphs that are present in the fonts I used the iKern service of Igino Marini.
