Gradius logo font by me
« on: April 26, 2016, 10:59:28 pm »
Now usable for the most common lettering jobs (English alphabet + German eszett + 0-9) and with a few extended Latin characters, my attempt to recreate the Solotype font, Lampoon, is available for free, called Harpoon. The primary character set is complete, so the work that remains is mostly expanding its available characters.

It's likely most well known for being the font used for the Gradius logo (before Konami tweaks, of course).

I like this one a lot, actually.

The only thing that jumps out to me is that the lowercase g is a little busy compared with the rest of the characters, but it's not too bad.

Awesome font! But indeed, the g in unreadable.
