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.
Another production for the 2006 BASIN development package originally named “Mark of Polish” but renamed “Reflections” to better suit the look.
It is inspired by the 1980s love for polished letters reflecting back the landscape adorning adverts, title screens and the side of monster trucks. I was pleasantly surprised this worked as well as it did given the size constraints and obvious lack of color available.
Best suited for titles, menus and lists with the right levels of contrast it can also work for full sentences and paragraphs. With a custom renderer you could position this text half way between vertical cells and color the top cyan and the bottom half yellow or green for the ultimate 80s chrome.
Can be seen in RoboBro.
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.
I designed this font in 2018 in BASIN as an experiment.
What do you get when you try to make a font with extreme angles in an 8x8? Well, a lot of compromise for sure but that’s always par for the course.
A tight, condensed font that looks pretty cool for titles and very short runs of text.
