A 2019 creation designed in BASIN for anything wanting a clean flowing italic font.

Unusually this font includes both serif and sans-serif in italic forms. Italics have long given me trouble and a serif italic was a challenge but I’m very happy with how it turned out.

Both serif and sans-serif are highly readable for titles and long runs of text and the serif bold is a useful addition. Being able to switch between them in a text adventure - one for descriptions and another for dialog perhaps - would be cool!


I designed this font in 2019 as a bold italic serif which is a tricky combination given the 8x8 limitation.

It came out quite well and is a relaxed, formal type that works well for a story-driven narrative.


A 2018 production that attempts to be a real oblique font (not italicized) straddle the intersection of being easy to read and yet not too playful.

This font works well in all scenarios and would likely shine with proportional rendering.
