Sector

I drew these fonts in 2018 and 2019 using BASIN. They are inspired by the cracking intros and tools from the Commodore Amiga ‘Warez’ scenes of the 90s.

Sector Zero starts from the most angular - zero pixels removed from corners - trough to the most extreme in Two where two pixels on each axis are removed on selected curves. The “One” variant removes just a single pixel from those corners to act as the in-between style.

These fonts look futuristic and edgy in a slightly retro style and work well on titles or for small to medium runs of text. A proportional renderer would also do them wonders.

Reynolds

I seem to have this knack for creating a font based on memories and when I compare it to the actual thing it’s quite different. This happened once again with this font which I thought I was drawing in 2018 in the style of some text I’d seen in Firefly and Serenity and so named it Reynolds after Captain Malcolm Reynolds. Searching online shows no such typographical style in Firefly at all!

This is a semi-futuristic font that would look good on the side of a starship though.

Can be seen in Last Train to Tranz-Central.

Reactor

A 2020 creation for a very bold square oblique font reminiscent of many a computer and games advertisement in the 90s once the 70s magnetic-OCR styles just couldn’t cut it any longer. A very similar typeface adorned the Protovision advert that was the story catalyst in the movie WarGames.

I added two non-oblique versions to compliment this typeface as part of a set - Serif and Regular - however, they are both quite similar to the existing fonts in the collection - Tentacle and Precinct but these versions better align if you want a single smart style. These three styles work well in a variety of scenarios including text, prose, headings, and lists.

Additionally a “Zone” style gives the feeling of a stencil or reflected mountain landscape while “Leak” gives a particle-decay/shaded look. Both are best suited for headings or title screens.

Protractor

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.
