I need some typeface suggestions. Basically, I am creating a poster based on a movie quote, more specifically the chant about "my rifle" from Full Metal Jacket. I am at the moment very influenced by Alan Kitching, and my plan is to do the layout so that the type creates the shape of an american M16 assaut rifle. I am not letterpressing it however, at least not yet. Now, I am looking for a heavy sans serif typeface, along the lines of Univers Extra Bold, but it need to have a bit more "industrialized" look, if that makes sense. A little more geometric. I have found one - Q Type Condensed Bold, but I´m not 100% sure about this one either, and I want a few more alternatives. Any suggestions? Ideally something from the Vietnam War era (1955-1970). Thanks in advance!
