ZX Peignot

Introduced in 1937 Peignot (pronounced Pen-yoe) is a classic font with a distinctive lower-case that consists of mostly restyled capitals. It saw some revival in the 70s and on various TV shows through the 80s and 90s including the first three seasons of Seinfeld.

I created this font in 2019 in BASIN as an adaptation and it fits surprisingly well.

This font works great in a variety of scenarios but certainly exudes a classical French style.

Rosand

I designed this font in 2019 in BASIN as a fun straight-edge almost-chiseled feel with corners that keep on going and generous serifs.

This font works great for titles and small runs of text and at you can even use it even for low-density text adventures at a stretch.

Can be seen in Subcommander

Trouble

Trouble is a recent 2019 design the blends the bottom-heavy style of Beachball and friendliness with some of the punch and angularity of Vertigo for something less chaotic and still fun.

The font works exceptionally well on lists and titles screens yet is still a good read for dialog despite the thickness.

ZX System X3

I created this font in 2019 using BASIN and it is based on the System X3 font by Paul Prue. It takes the concept of the magnetic ‘bump’ and puts it in unusual places with extra dots and unexpected curves and lines. The result is something quite aggressive and bold.

It works well for titles and small amounts of options/list screens but should not be used for large runs of text or prose.
