Instax is a brand of instant cameras and associated films and printers marketed by Fujifilm since the late 1990s. The logo as seen in advertising, packaging as well as on the devices themselves has used — a squooshed and slightly modified — Keedy Sans ever since, a typeface that, in the words of its designer Jeffery Keedy, “is self-consciously crude and anti-aesthetic in reaction to the slickness of Modernism”.
Initially regarded as “too weird to be very useful” when released in 1991, Keedy Sans soon was “starting to be a popular typeface for music and youth-oriented audiences. Its popularity slowly but consistently grew; by 1995 it was starting to look pretty legible and tame compared to other new typefaces on the market. Eventually even the big boys in the corporate world were no longer put off by my typographic antics, and Keedy Sans made its way into the mainstream world of corporate commercialism by 1997.” Instax was introduced around 1998.
