Space Opera

I created this font in 2018 as a tribute to the Star Wars logo.

The letters work well for a monospace as many glyphs fill the width with joining lines. It manages to be a flowing font without the jagged edges loops and diagonals impose.

It works surprisingly well for titles and lists and isn’t too bad even for full blocks of text.

Orbiter

I designed this font in 2019 using BASIN as a tribute to 80s NASA and the typography that adorned the iconic Space Shuttle.

While the shuttles no longer take to the skies their imagery is inspiring to this day.

This typeface works well for both titles and large runs of text although a couple of the more extreme stylization like the A might confuse in some scenarios. Having both a bold and non-bold gives a few extra options.

Chest Burster

I created this font around 2006 as a resource for the BASIN development tool.

The inspiration is taken from, as its name would suggest, the scant few letters in the logo for the movie Aliens.

This font is very readable, although the generous spacing between characters can make it hard to read for large blocks of text. That could be addressed by a proportional font renderer or even just rendering the leftmost 6 pixels of each glyph.
