This font has been sitting in my incomplete folder for probably well over a year. I couldn’t decide what to do with it. It looks different enough from my other fonts but is also quite inconsistent. Attempts at making it more consistent resulted in a complete loss of flavor.

I showed this to a couple of people at the Seattle Retro Computing meetup - one guy there was specifically interested in 8x8 fonts for a SEGA Master System game he’s creating and they both liked it so… here it is along with an additional bold-variant.

It works pretty well in all scenarios, as with a lot of these fonts a proportional renderer would make it shine.

Security Concepts

Created in late 2019 and inspired by the original RoboCop logo this font is bold, chunky, industrial and angular.

It works well for titles, menus and short lists. Larger blocks of text can be quite hard to read.

Pixharmonix

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

This font is one of the few 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 does not lend itself to lower-case at all.

It works well for very short runs, titles, menus and the usual adornments.

No Step

A 2021 third-attempt at a stencil font this one directly inspired by the USAF technical manual and sporting caps for both upper and lower (the latter being just 1 pixel shorter) for a serious look.

As is the case with decorative fonts great for titles and headings but stay away from prose, sentences and descriptions especially given this is also all-caps.
