The typography and semiotics of Alien are fascinating, and now you can have them on your keyboard. The G20 Semiotic Keycap Set from Signature Plastics embodies almost all of Rob Cobb's design work for the movie, right down to the references to Hindu mysticism from the briefly-glimpsed self-destruction console keyboard.
There's a sleek, minimalist beauty to Alien's design language that's both nostalgic and timeless. But it's also an in-joke about the futuristic design of unreliable British electrical appliances.
Alien's design language is basically a joke about what a worthless pile of shit everything in Britain was in the 1970s
