Daddy Cool

I created this font around 2006 for the BASIN package.

The inspiration - and name - come from the bold bubbly fonts of 1970’s disco and album covers.

It works for titles and surprisingly well for large runs of text like adventure games and the world definitely needs more games set in the 70s!

Can be seen in Funky Fungus, A Very Sheepy Xmas and a modified version in Duckstroma.

Crews

I designed this font in 2005 with the unoriginal name Top Heavy Bold. It is re-released here under the name Crews.

It is a very bold font with a strong weight that is focused on the top of the glyph.

It works well for titles, lists, and paragraphs full of descriptive text and prose.

Chunky Monkey

I created this font as part of the BASIN package around 2006 to see just how bold you could go in an 8x8 grid while still making it readable.

This font’s original release had a slightly taller upper-case with the lower-case shifted up one pixel to allow a small descender. I don’t feel it really worked very well, and so the alphas have been reduced one pixel in height in this release to make it more readable.

The font is still quite readable despite the chunky bold nature and not harsh with playful bubble-like curves. It works best for titles or short runs of text.

BowAndArrow

I designed this font in 2019 in BASIN as a very bold and angular font.

It works great for titles and headings and descriptive prose providing the screen isn’t too fuzzy.
