I drew this font sometime around 2006 for BASIN, initially named Cinemax, before discovering it was a trademark. So here it is back again with a much more generic name.

Inspired by the 1920s art-deco movement, it takes a common modern approach to the curves and lines to better adapt to the constraints of 8x8.

This style of typeface has always been quite popular in 8-bit games and can be seen in many text adventures. The mix of bold and non-bold stems allows for space to play with while also packing in style.


I designed this font in 2006 for BASIN as Broadway and later renamed it Broadwary after finding out a font was already called Broadway created in 1927, although they are quite a bit different.

It is similar in concept to the 1920s art-deco fonts associated with shows but far thicker and with reduced height.

It works okay for titles and headings and can be used for paragraphs in a pinch.

Can be seen in Yazzie.
