Envious

My Envy Code R font has been quite popular and its history goes back through Envy Code B and A bitmap fonts… right back to my Plotter font on the Sinclair Spectrum.

Back in 2006, I thought it would be interesting to complete the circle and try to shrink the feel of Envy Code R back down to a byte-sized version and the result is a pleasing, easy on the eyes sans.

This font is very readable and suits a lot of clean easy to read scenarios although it would benefit from using a 7 pixel wide (regular style) or proportional renderer (all) to reduce the character spacing. Unusually it comes with both a bold and italic style and also a serif variant.

Envious Serif

I created this font in 2018 as a variation of Envious that featured serifs as an attempt to fill some of the extra white-space and provide a complimentary serif for games that wanted to mix the formal and informal.

This font is still quite readable for a serif on-screen font although the vertical can feel quite tight for large blocks of text.

District

This typeface started out as a 2006 BASIN production under the names Little Shadow, Little Shadow Bold, and Small Outline. I decided to combine them under a new name for this release - District - and produce a regular variant plus missing bold weight for the outline as well as a Digital. Toward the end of 2020 I added a “Comic” style for further fun.

The regular styles work well in many scenarios, the outline works best as dark text on a light background and the shadow requires that dark ink on a light paper to achieve the effect at all.

District Digital

A 2018 digital take on the District font that started as just one variant but as the other styles of District grew it made more sense to split it out into its own so it could get bold, outline, and bold outline variants without making the former typeface collection too large.

While the font is not too dissimilar to District the angular and sharp edge contrasts give it quite a different feel and it is much better suited for tech-inspired scenarios. The non-outline versions work great for all scenarios and the outlines can work great for titles when the background is lighter than the font color.
