Inkscript

This early 2020 typeface has sat around for far too long in the incomplete. As is often the case it felt like it needed something at the time but looking at it later revealed it’s already rather nice. Sometimes all it takes is fresh eyes and a reflection on the constraints.

This typeface is designed to look like a flowing brush script with plenty of wet ink. It is available in two weights and works well for most scenarios. I personally love the upper-case ‘C’ which sets the tone for the rest of the letters.

Pixharmonix

I designed this font around 2006 as a resource for the BASIN development tool and was inspired by the Harmonix font.

This is one of the very few fonts where I did not create a proper lower case - they are just less bold versions of the caps. I consider upper-case only fonts a cheat but I’m going to let this one pass. This style is just very difficult to get a lower case out of.

Firebird

I created this font in 2018 as a tribute to the 80s game publisher Firebird.

I’m sure the font used in their logo has been around for a long time but I’ve not been able to track down the exact one they used so once again this is a pretty liberal interpretation based on just those 8 letters.

It works quite well for titles and short runs of text. I wouldn’t recommend it for anything longer - it gets to be hard work reading it!
