A recreation of the first San Francisco from 1984, originally called Ransom, by the incomparable Susan Kare.

I noticed that among the various recreations of the original bitmap fonts for the Macintosh, this iconic design was missing, so I decided to fill the gap.

I used an image rather than the font as a reference, and don’t know the intended point size, the spacing could be off, and the number of characters is unfortunately very limited.

It's not intimidating enough, lettering is not psychopathic enough, and if you intent to scare dem max toyz outta Santa's big red bag never address him with 'dear Santa' cuz now he'd be thinking ur just another sweet lil' kiddo.. ehehe
