I started these fonts in 2018 as very separate creations with different names. As I refined a couple of them, they started to fit better together, and I eventually decided to unify them into a single set.

This font works everywhere you want generous-spacing and would look even more awesome with a proportional renderer.


SEMI is an OCR font designed by SEMI.ORG for use in character recognition on printed circuit boards in 2006.

I made this liberal bitmap-only 8x8 adaptation after somebody requested it on one of the Spectrum forums. It takes more than a few cues from OCR-A but goes off in its own direction.

The actual font is upper-case only, so I’ve had to imagine what the lower-case would be like in-order to provide a full usable set.

This font works surprisingly well for most use cases.


This typeface is a 2019 BASIN production exploring the gap between my hand-written (Journey, Marais, Homestead) and humanist-sans (Envious, Magic 5) fonts. As my hand-writing is somewhat of a print, this resonated well with me, and I was pleased with the result.

This font can be used for titles but looks best for long sentences of prose and would work well in a first-person text adventure. Given the small size of the text, it would also benefit from a proportional text renderer.


I designed this font in 2018 in BASIN as an experiment.

What do you get when you try to make a font with extreme angles in an 8x8? Well, a lot of compromise for sure but that’s always par for the course.

A tight, condensed font that looks pretty cool for titles and very short runs of text.
