11/16/2018 - Coming soon, KANJI!
Lost in Japan is a font with that curious type of feel. The name makes sense when I spell it out below.
LOST - Very confusing, yet cool.
IN - Really?
JAPAN - Cointains all Hiragana/Katakana characters.
Portland State University has employed sworn and armed Portland Police officers since 2015, despite widespread dissent from the student body. On June 29, 2018, officers from the PSU Campus Public Safety Office used unnecessary deadly force when they shot and killed Jason Washington, a 45-year-old man who was trying to break up a fight outside a bar near the PSU campus. Jason Washington had a wife and a family; he worked for the United States Postal Service and was a Navy veteran. His killers were placed on paid administrative leave until a grand jury declined to indict them, and they will not face criminal charges.
It's far past time for PSU to take action. Two internal reviews have been planned, but no timeline has been given for when they will be complete. If Portland State University wants to be seen as a progressive school, the administration needs to take action and listen to what students have been saying for three years: Disarm campus security.
You can't be a progressive school if your security officers can get away scot-free with killing a black man who was trying to de-escalate a fight, just because he happened to have a gun; or if you allow anti-choice protesters to display twenty-foot-tall displays equating abortion to genocide in the center of campus, complete with graphic images of genocide victims and infamously falsified depictions of "aborted fetuses"; or if you knowingly provide a platform for notorious far-right agitators to spread their violent, hateful rhetoric in a city already fraught with neo-Nazis looking to cause harm to marginalized people. Kindly get your sh*t together, and stop pretending to be progressive: either drop the pretense, or drop the bullsh*t that should have been left to die back in the 40s-60s.
Anyway. I made this font as part of a design I'm donating to the #DisarmPSU movement on campus. Bootlickers are welcome to piss off and not use this font. No political arguments in the comments please.
SUPER MA(RE-)O BROS.
A bitmap typeface family that recaps the classic fonts that were used for 1985 Nintendo Entertainment System game "Super Mario Bros."
-- It's a large piece that covers a bit of everything. And two seporate typefaces will be published the following days to accompany this one seemlessly.
both more less finished as well, but changes were made in this one that requires the other two to be fixed again in order to seemlessly work together before getting published, So stay tuned!
About this fist part:
It combines not just the two (title screen and ingame regular text)fonts used for this game, but also includes dingbats related to the game, and combines it all into one single typeface!
The sample will only display correctly at exact pixel size or double the value of this due to dither gradients that otherwise not show as a solid surfaces.
Basic and Extended Latin - letters seen at title screen
Superscripts and Subscripts - regular text font (only partial alphabet, as according to the unicode standard for this block)
Miscellaneous Symbols - miscellaneous dingbats related to the game such as emoji's and blocks to make seemless ornamental features like seen ingame
Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms - regular text font but with full suport for both uppercase & lowercase, as well as numerals and basic punctuation.
Designed on the bus when trying to create an alternative font for the destination panel. I havent looked but I'm sure there are many fonts very similar to this one. And yes, I could have split the central left and right tiles into two separate ones for clarity but I wanted less tiles.
This pixel-art-style font supports almost all latin characters, many greek characters and the capital cyrillic characters. It is also meant to be used with my reformed spelling system.
