Plotter I dream of flatbeds
As a child, I had terrible handwriting, and so I was drawn to the flatbed plotter at my school that would grasp a pen and then precisely draw gorgeously legible letters. I designed this font back in the 80s in The Artist II on my Spectrum +3 as a tribute to that device - our school’s PlotMate attached to a BBC Micro.
I ported this font to Windows and further refined it into Envy Code A. That led to Envy Code B, which in turn inspired Envy Code R. I also dusted it off in 2005 for the BASIN package and created a ‘Plotter 2005’ variant and a bold weight. The 2019 version takes a little from either, tweaks it and then unifies the style with the bold weight.
Both weights are easy to read, clean, and work in all scenarios.
