:: An attempt to make a bold typeface. I'm not sure of the 9 pixel version...
Hi Greg! Yeah! try with versalitas men, it`s a pretty cool one, any regular version? Miguel.
hey very nice so nice i am need a download of it signed IN NEED
Concerning readability: It's a largely (and intentionally?) ignored fact that 2-pixel stems are better than 1-pixel stems, at current mainstream PPEMs. hhp
greg: i have a sketch of a very similar bitmap family which i wanted to produce, and now you've gone and done it better than i could have... congratulations, it's great...
Sample text is part of the conclusion from "A Comparison of Popular Online Fonts" http://psychology.wichita.edu/surl/usabilitynews/41/onlinetext.htm
are you going to distribute this font family ? i'd love to have it
Looking nice! I think the Thin-Ten and the Reg-Ten & -Eleven work best. Could you possibly put up that paragraph set in Reg-Eleven-"Bold" as well? hhp
this is a great screen font family... i really like the thin versions... nice one...
Thanks! Is it just me, or is this more readable than its non-Bold? hhp
Hrant and his two pixel stem widths...
Dude, please just answer the question! ;-) Anyway, one pixel or two, this is one cool bitmap font. hhp
Hehe. Ok, I agree here. The REG Bold 11 is the easiest of the set to read. Though, I'm most impressed with the readability of the THIN 9. I have some trouble with the 'e' in REG 10. Stephen
I've tried a different 'e'. You're right, Stephen, it seems working better.
Yes. I think you've sacrificed a bit of consistency of style for readability. For a bitmap, I think it's a fair trade. Stephen
Thanks for all your constructive comments, this is the definitive version. It's dev' time now! Greg.
wonderful... Can't really say anything else
what a fantastic family, they seem so happy together you might be featured in the next version of "A Comparison of Popular Online Fonts"..
this is a beautiful font family. well done.
Ok here's the Kind(?) complete family. I am not sure this Uc N as reversed U is a good idea... your comments are welcome.
Beautiful. It has a nice Bayer flavor. It's a rare gem of a bitmap where multiple sizes and weights feel like a cohesive family. The U and V seem very close. Perhaps the U needs a stem. I see you're using Verdana-like widths for the 'regular' weight--great for readability. The 'thin' set is very nice. As much as I like Verdana, I've often wished it had a more elegant set, that wasn't so clunky (New Yorker's would say horsey) at 11pt. I'd love to see a text setting... even if it's in French. My humble plea: sell this to Microsoft so they can distribute it freely with their browser. It would make the Web a much better place.
Hrant, that's for you.
