ZX Peignot

Introduced in 1937 Peignot (pronounced Pen-yoe) is a classic font with a distinctive lower-case that consists of mostly restyled capitals. A revival in the 70s and various TV shows through the 80s and 90s, including the first three seasons of Seinfeld, brought it back into the public eye.

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.

ZX Times

The Times New Roman typeface is ubiquitous, being default fonts installed on pretty much every platform under the sun.

Designing this typeface in 2018, the challenge was developing a bold serif in 8x8 that didn’t just look like a generic bold serif but retained the style of Times. Between the oval 0, the double-story “g” and subtle contrasts on angled lines.

The font works well in many scenarios where you want a bold, formal look.

It features in Corey Coolbrew.
