ProFont (Nayuki’s version)

Introduction

This is a bitmap monospace font intended for low-resolution monochrome displays. The line strokes are normally 2 pixels thick. Each glyph takes up 12×22 pixels of space. Exactly the set of 95 printable ASCII characters are supported. The font is open-source under the MIT license.

I took the ProFont Distribution 2.2 (copies available on Tobias Jung’s page) as the base to work from. Then I tweaked letter shapes pixel by pixel to achieve the aesthetic that I wanted – such as rounder curves, more uniform strokes, more uniform heights, et cetera.
