Fusion Drive

A 2019 creation that managed to escape the _Incomplete folder in early 2020. It is aggressive, angular, and very tightly compressed.

Despite the compressed vertical height, it works well for titles and large runs of text at least on clear RGB screens and emulators.

With some tweaks to the symbols, you could render this font with just 6 vertical pixels if using a custom renderer. On a Spectrum that would give 32 lines instead of the usual 24.

Star Ranger

The font is a fresh creation from 2019 with inspiration out of nowhere. A few letters in it took a life of its own as it wraps and sparkles with a futuristic flair.

This font works well for small sequences of text that require a unique futuristic stylized feel.

It is not recommended for large blocks of text or on low-fidelity displays.

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.

Reynolds

I seem to have this knack for creating a font based on memories and when I compare it to the actual thing it’s quite different. This happened once again with this font which I thought I was drawing in 2018 in the style of some text I’d seen in Firefly and Serenity and so named it Reynolds after Captain Malcolm Reynolds. Searching online shows no such typographical style in Firefly at all!

This is a semi-futuristic font that would look good on the side of a starship though.

Can be seen in Last Train to Tranz-Central and ZHL.
