Star Ranger

The font is a fresh creation from 2019 with inspiration out of nowhere. A few letters in it took a life of its own as it wraps and sparkles with a futuristic flair.

This font works well for small sequences of text that require a unique futuristic stylized feel.

It is not recommended for large blocks of text or on low-fidelity displays.

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 stylization like the A might confuse in some scenarios. Having both a bold and non-bold gives a few extra options.

No Step

A 2021 third-attempt at a stencil font this one directly inspired by the USAF technical manual and sporting caps for both upper and lower (the latter being just 1 pixel shorter) for a serious look.

As is the case with decorative fonts great for titles and headings but stay away from prose, sentences and descriptions especially given this is also all-caps.
