Fonts & typography
Envy Code (programming)
Specifically designed for programmers with clean distinct monospaced characters.
- Envy Code R – scalable extensively hinted in regular, bold and italic.
- Envy Code A – bitmapped tight spacing 7pt-12pt in regular and bold.
- Envy Code B – bitmapped relaxed spacing 9pt-10pt in regular, bold, italic and bold italics.
These were just done for a bit of fun using iFontMaker on the iPad.
- Damien Typewriter the mean fusion of American Typewriter meets Comic Sans?
- Damien Vertical a vertically straight hand-drawn typeface
FontStruct is a great tool for putting together block-based fonts. I’ve developed a few there:
- Lickable5 small 5×5 pixel font with additional points to force aliasing
- Magic5 small 5×5 pixel monospaced font also available in bold
- SixByFourPro small 6×4 pixel proportional font
- Subpixel5 small 5×5 pixel proportional font that fakes subpixels for anti-aliasing
- Tiny small 5×3 pixel proportional font
ZX Origins (bitmap 8×8)
ZX Origins is a large collection of fonts that all started life as 8×8 pixel monospaced fonts on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum now being repackaged in a variety of formats.
Modern interpretations or takes on older fonts.
