Hexatron is a vague sci-fi aesthetic that was prominent throughout the 2010s following the end of the Frutiger Era, and is characterized by hexagons, neon blue, holograms, and futuristic technology. It maintains some Frutiger Aero motifs such as futurism, gloss, and 3D graphics, but contrasts it by largely omitting the nature-centered values of Frutiger Aero, incorporating sharp corners and edges to emphasise Abstract Technology. Hexatron influences are usually found in modern sci-fi media and real life gaming-tech equipment such as the DualSense controller. Hexatron is also adjacent with Cyberpunk, Neo-Vectorheart and DORFic due to their shared similarities.

Visuals[]

Hexatron has a large focus on sleek, futuristic, often sci-fi, technology. Common motifs include: hexagons, neon blue, holograms, terminal-inspired UIs, and angular technology with heavy ornamentation. Hexatron also shares many design elements with Frutiger Aero such as gloss and 3D graphics; however, Hexatron largely omits the nature-centered motifs of Frutiger Aero. Instead, it leans more into Abstract Tech.
