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.

Cushion

On reviewing many of the fonts for publication as part of my ZX Origins collection I noticed a dearth of softer fonts and Cushion is an attempt to address that.

Soft curves are difficult on an 8x8 as you either take one pixel off a corner or three - the former can look square and the latter triangular. As always a combination of tricks such as reducing the length of the horizontal strokes can achieve a more desirable effect.

This font works great everywhere and is very pleasing to read.

Carton

I created this font in 2018, although I’ve forgotten the inspiration entirely. A bold style variant was added in 2020.

The style is similar but not quite as wide, with cleaner, more defined edges taking some artistic liberties with diagonal lines.

It is straightforward and easy to read and comes with a ‘Tall Caps’ variant that effectively provides tiny drop-caps when used alongside lower case letters.
