A digital-like pixel font that follows a strict pattern for its designed characters.
The "@" character illustrates the pattern used and is intended to act as a dark background for the lit characters to be displayed on top.
Spider Fangs is a blocky style with some pointy edges and a pinch of digital texture. But be careful, you could get bit and poisoned.
Prévenir is based on repair prevention techniques in our devices - how proprietary screws are locking us out of being able to look inside and fix our things- creatinga physical seal. The idea of the typeface is to take a bitmap font, where the building blocks are easily visible and understandable, made pixel by pixel, and then add a 'seal' by making all the edges curved, obscuring the font making process.
The name 'Prévenir', french for prevention is a play on 'Avenir' a font used by Apple - a company widely known for their repair prevention strategies.
Bold version - Prevenir also exists in regular
Welcome to the Future...
Dramatics aside, QUANTUM is a visual display typeface designed to convey one cyberpunk future out of many.
It is intended to be built as a monospaced font (however, spacing errors occurred, and it is a faux-monospace as a result), made on a 9x10 pixel grid out of a personal fascination with the vision of the cyberpunk future according to the 90s and a desire to capture the "spirit" of the original Sony PlayStation. One of the leading sources of inspiration is the work by The Designers Republic (tDR).
This typeface not only features Latin characters, but also Cyrillic, Greek, and even a few Coptic characters for good measure (in hopes of easing in the old world into the future)
Still, work in progress. USE IT AS YOU LIKE!
(and use it, but please credit me! and improve however you want!)
FORWARD- I wanted to create a font in which felt like it had movement. I also wanted it to relate to codeing and glitching, so it had a technical feel. This font connects together, even when re-arranged. This was put in place to lead the viewer through the text so that they felt they were being lead into a digital world. I wanted This Font to be Energetic and hectic, and i feel like ive done this with the use of smaller pixels breaking up the thicker and more readable lettering.This is a clone
Another font Inspired by a Lumines Song.

Recap of a retro computer type lettering that appeared throughout the 70's and 80's as the word "data" on various brochures, envelopes and memo's by Dutch multinational human resource consulting firm Randstad. Most of which I guess were designed by Ben Bos.
My second font which supports many languages.
Original size: 15pt
A font which has a spurless, sans-serif, pixelated polygonal look which is somewhat reminescent of fonts used in VHS technology.
A lot of applied science has gone and continues to go into this design. It's designed to remain legible on all media in all use conditions, provided that one uses the original size or a multiple thereof. Numerous technologies and mediums are being employed to realize this objective.
"Diaspora" is now being tested and refined for use with/on/against:
• CRT, LCD & e-Ink screens
• image formats & compressed imagery (GIF, JPG)
• printers (inkjet, bubble jet, laserjet, & thermal)
• analog video & multi-generational copies (VHS, Super 8)
• digital video (AVI, MP4, MPEG, WEBM, WMV)
• 3D and voxel models (Blender, MagicaVoxel, POV-Ray)
• dynamic scaling hardware (game consoles and capture devices)
• imagery plugins & filters, including image degraders
• image scaling/interpolation hardware & software
• image recognition hardware & software
These all have traits which degrade, distort, compress, glitch, or otherwise alter imagery in various ways. This design aims to minimize the loss of legibility from these effects and to attain the best scores possible in various forms of imagery analysis. So far, this has proved extremely useful, as it can remain fully legible even when extreme JPG or video compression are applied to it thousands of times.
A piece software I helped write, called the Marinan Imagery Deconstruction AI System (MIDAS), is being used on captured images of this font. The end objective is to realize the design which has the best all-around Marinan Interpretability Value (MIV) for all the tested platforms - the design which is considered by MIDAS to be the most legible in the most media under the broadest range of use conditions and quality levels.
MIDAS uses a set of considerations made with both humans and computers in mind, so a high MIV does not necessarily equal a better font - it just means one that the system thinks is easier to visually interpret. Note the use of the phrase "visually interpret" as opposed to "read". MIDAS tries to determine how well people and computers can tell what shapes are, not how much enjoyment they'll get from reading or how much strain they might undergo while doing it.
1.0.0 - initial release.
1.0.1 - More Latin support added.
1.0.2 - First batch of tests run.
1.0.3 - gjy5&ßẞ were improved, some glyphs added.
1.0.4 - Second batch of tests run. Space width reduced.
1.0.5 - Experimentally converted to a rounded spurless design, then converted back to a plain spurless after testing. A few new ligatures were added.
1.0.6 - Cyrillic and Greek enter development. Many of these letters must be altered to be distinct from their Latin counterparts.
1.0.7 - Some spacing values changed to increase internal consistency. More difficult tests are being devised. However, since only I seem interested in this type of work, this project is going on hiatus for some time.

Calculator font with a 7-segment display. This should bring many of you back to school, but in a good way, I hope.
This one belongs to a small family called Calculatrix.
I've allowed "MWmw+" to break the grid because they were impossible to render otherwise...
Did/do you ever use oldschool calculators to write funny messages? Post your best calculator words in a comment! :D
Some people may think I'm carving a niche for this kind of font style. Some people may say "Oni, m'colleague, why don't you branch out and challenge yourself?"
I'm lazy, and I like this font style. So here's another one.
