This font was sitting around in this finished state for many months. Normally fonts stick around because they need work but this one was because I kept wanting it to fit with another font or wait until I had another font to go with it to form a family. Neither happened, it just is its own thing.
It has the one-side weighted style of a number of fonts I’ve done like Reactor, takes on an angle but then flows through like pieces of neon tubing.
It is quite hard to read so use sparingly on titles.
I thought I’d covered most of the over-bold uneven styles I could in previous fonts but this one goes extreme in a top-heavy way and managed to pull off something a little different.
It works well for headlines and title screens although the WMm and w can be very tight and a proportional render can really help there.
A 2020 design that goes with a squared-off angular bold look that still manages to look different - is somewhat the opposite bolding of my Trouble font with some alternative takes in places.
The font works well on lists and titles. Screens can be readable for prose on decent quality displays.
This creation is hot off the press being both designed and published the same day in April 2020.
It is quite typical for bold fonts to bold the vertical strokes yet older wood-cut signs from the late 1800s tended to bold the horizontal strokes especially exaggerating the serifs. I did such a font a while back called Reward but wanted to try something different and so this here is - the Mild West.
The design really stands out from many other 8x8 fonts and yet is still quite readable. If you have a western based text adventure this should be in your consideration.
