I started these fonts in 2018 as very separate creations with different names. As I refined a couple of them they started to fit better together and I eventually decided to unify them into a single set.
This font works great everywhere you want generous spacing and would look even more awesome with a proportional renderer.
A 2020 creation for a very bold square oblique font reminiscent of many a computer and games advertisement in the 90s once the 70s magnetic-OCR styles just couldn’t cut it any longer. A very similar typeface adorned the Protovision advert that was the story catalyst in the movie WarGames.
I added two non-oblique versions to compliment this typeface as part of a set - Serif and Regular - however, they are both quite similar to the existing fonts in the collection - Tentacle and Precinct but these versions better align if you want a single smart style. These three styles work well in a variety of scenarios including text, prose, headings, and lists.
Additionally a “Zone” style gives the feeling of a stencil or reflected mountain landscape while “Leak” gives a particle-decay/shaded look. Both are best suited for headings or title screens.
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.
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.
