Ultraproxi is an austere, technical sans-serif typeface. Visual cues were taken from high speed computer printers from the 1950s to 1970s. You've probably seen this type of printing on old driver's licenses or magazine subscription labels. One of the more well known, early line printers was the IBM 1403 chain printer. Metal type slugs were linked in a chain which rapidly whirled over an ink ribbon. On the back of the page, a succession of electromagnetic hammers smacked the paper when the appropriate character lined up. The hammers struck quickly but that fast-moving chain of slugs caused some horizontal smearing. Those machines were lightning fast; later models could print over 1000 lines per minute. This printing system required a sturdy typeface design which was with the catalyst for Ultraproxi.
