No other typeface has to work quite as hard as a monospace designed for coding environments if you ask me. Here, the specimen for Gintronic features panels of explanatory text explaining the features baked into the font to mitigate things like fatigue for the reader.
Really neat specimen for a good looking typeface. Whilst missing a few key components for effective evaluation, such as a type tester, it makes up for it by the stacked example panels outlining the features of the font.
This takes me back. My Amiga 500 was my first serious computer experience (following on from the BBC Micro and Spectrum ZX81). It's amazing how just a font can rekindle those feelings. The specimen here is simple and adds various simulating screen effects.
Input is a 'flexible system of fonts designed for programming'. This specimen is a treat. Interesting design, useful content, supportive illustrations shown potential usage, and a really well designed license table.
Always a sucker for Mono typefaces. This specimen for Azo Mono has some interesting generative illustrations accompanying the type tester.
What a beautiful serif typeface. The specimen is simple and opens with a carousel of images, but it's the type testers where Kisba Nova Text comes alive – especially the longer form paragraphs.
This specimen for Greenstone from Sharp gets better the further you scroll. Past some basic evaluation components and stacked type testers, the specimen goes into detail of the design process.
A bright specimen for Tartuffo. "This new font, the Tartuffo, is as bad-looking and bitter as the hypocrites in literary works". Check out the ligatures!
