Labyrinth

I designed this font in 2019 and for a moment I thought I had re-created Rosand but while both have those tight corners and interesting gaps they don’t share much else in common and so here it is as a separate typeface.

It works great for titles and lists and can be used for runs of text provided they are short with a good color scheme.

Isofell

I created this font back in 2005-2006 for BASIN and it’s one of the more unusual.

The letters look like they’ve been either been rotated 30’ or been re-plotted onto an isometric grid - hence the name.

This font is hard to read but could be fun on pop-ups for sound effects - KAPOW! - or short bursts on title screens. If you use it for anything more than that … well… you’re asking for complaints!

Franopix

A 2005 creation for BASIN with aggressive styling and flair - I’m sure there was some specific inspiration for this one but I’m at a loss as to where it came from.

This font works well for titles and lists but can be a bit extreme for large runs of text. Having bold and non-bold can help add some variety to lists and titles.

Diamond

This design started with trying specific diamond shapes but soon took on more irregularity to deal with the size constraints. When combined with the lower-case characters not joining up the counters, it took on a rough unpolished look, evoking old-time adventure.

The font works well for large runs of prose.
