Security Concepts

Created in late 2019 and inspired by the original RoboCop logo this font is bold, chunky, industrial and angular.

It works well for titles, menus and short lists. Larger blocks of text can be quite hard to read.

Submerged

I created this font in 2019 using BASIN and it is somewhat of an intersection between Needlecast (low height), Orbiter (open counters) and Datel Tribute (incomplete strokes).

The uniform lines and edges give it a futuristic feel while broken segments hint at neon signage.

It works okay for titles and short runs of text.

Standstill

This font has been an off-and-on for a few years. Stencil fonts are tough in 8x8 and although they’re quite common in military and combat games they’re often not that good. It’s difficult to be consistent and readable plus many of them entirely skip the lower case.

Standstill tries to be a bit more readable than many serif based stencil fonts by taking a few liberties with the breaks in the letters. The other trick has been to not necessarily double all vertical stems and this worked great on glyphs like 8, M, A, etc. The final trick was only going with single-side serifs where it made for a clearer glyph without compromising the design.

This font works great for titles and list screens. You can use it for prose with a bit of care on the color scheme.

Orbiter

I designed this font in 2019 using BASIN as a tribute to 80s NASA and the typography that adorned the iconic Space Shuttle.

While the shuttles no longer take to the skies their imagery is inspiring to this day.

This typeface works well for both titles and large runs of text although a couple of the more extreme stylizations like the A might confuse in some scenarios. Having both a bold and non-bold gives a few extra options.
