Specmatic

This font originally designed in 2006 for BASIN saw some tweaks for the 2019 release. It was designed to look sleek, angular, and industrial.

One advantage of having these simulated screenshots is they help with design, spacing, and consistency which is all but impossible inside most bitmap font editors.

This update sees revisions to !Ii3 to iron out some inconsistencies. It works well for short and long runs of text where you want something that feels fast, industrial or mechanical without being too in-your-face.

Riveter

A 2020 design with a hard-edge get-it-done attitude and momentum. The fact it looks like it could be stamped on sheets of aluminium is a bonus.

This font works great in all scenarios and a proportional renderer would make it look even better.

Prelude

I designed this font in 2019 as an intersection between regular italic fonts and handwritten fonts.

It is almost too neat and uniform to be a handwriting font yet has a certain hand-made charm to it.

Readability and spacing is good although it would also benefit from a proportional renderer to deal with those pesky i and l glyphs.

Can be seen in 16K Life.

Journey

Another 2018 design this time a more formal hand font that still has some personality yet isn’t as flowing. Perhaps an official log or record of events.

This font works quite well in all scenarios and provides nice spacing despite the bold and italic nature of the font.
