Pitstop

Another 2005-2007 creation for the BASIN development tool this time with a racing feel.

I wanted to do an LCD font but 8x8 pixels is simply nowhere near enough to do it properly … but as is often the case there are tricks for a similar feel.

This font uses some missing pixels to give an LCD/race board feel that makes it a good choice for small runs of text, timers, lap times, and scoreboards.

Can be seen in Tea-Leaf Ted.

Mach4

A fast cutting font reminiscent of high speed, action-packed movie posters and video games I designed in 2019 using the trusty BASIN editor. A wide variant was added in July 2020.

This font works well for both titles and prose where you want a mix of edgy, fast, and futuristic.

Journey

Another 2018 design this time a more formal hand font that still has some personality yet isn’t as flowing. Perhaps an official log or record of events.

This font works quite well in all scenarios and provides nice spacing despite the bold and italic nature of the font.

IoBus

I designed this font in 2018 initially as a rectangular version of the 1920s Cinema but it quickly took on a feel of its own and with some narrowing of the glyphs and alternative flair switched style completely and detached from the past entirely.

Now it almost feels like a stream of binary 1s and 0s flying out of a device port…

This font very well for titles and list screens but a little heavy on the eyes for long runs of text like text adventures.
