SquareWolf

I designed this font in 2019 but didn’t polish it up until 2020. I’d held back expecting to create some different variant or for some other font to otherwise intersect into a typeface but it never happened.

The font works quite well for futuristic styled games when used sparingly - large paragraphs of text can however be hard to read given the limited x-height.

ZX Maverick

I ran into the FF Maverick on signage at Science World in Vancouver and had to take a snap to later identify.

In 2019 I had a go at doing an 8x8 pixel version but it required a fair bit of back and forth until I found something I feel captured the spirit of the original.

This typeface despite having plenty of flair on the capitals and numerics is quite easy to read thanks to the more restrained lower-case glyphs. It works well in all scenarios where you want a modern-looking bold font.

ZX Peignot

Introduced in 1937 Peignot (pronounced Pen-yoe) is a classic font with a distinctive lower-case that consists of mostly restyled capitals. It saw some revival in the 70s and on various TV shows through the 80s and 90s including the first three seasons of Seinfeld.

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.

Trouble

Trouble is a recent 2019 design the blends the bottom-heavy style of Beachball and friendliness with some of the punch and angularity of Vertigo for something less chaotic and still fun.

The font works exceptionally well on lists and titles screens yet is still a good read for dialog despite the thickness.
