Rapture is a font based on an Art Deco inspired theme. It was very inspiring to create a sans-serif font that has different flourishes and accents, like the type used during the Art Deco movement did.
Although a sans-serif typeface usually tends to be very geometric and even, fonts used during the Art Deco movement feature different stroke
variations and flourishes on the letters. The typefaces from that era
also tend to be very long and somewhat rounded.
The name Rapture was based off of one of the main inspirations for this type face - a popular video game called BioShock 2. Rapture is the name
of the city within the game, which is an underwater Art Deco utopia. As
captivating as the game’s storyline is, BioShock 2’s scenery itself
is just as fascinating.
