Console Font 1-Ups Arial

by Paul Strauss

I’m really not a fan of fancy display typefaces. Maybe it’s my early eye-scarring experience with the San Francisco font on my original Macintosh 128, but I really prefer fonts that are readable over cool looking. That said, I’ll make an exception here.


ConsoleFont was designed by artist Varun Vachhar, and he’s managed to figure out a way to take a bunch of gaming’s most iconic controllers and turn them into letters in his font. While many of them work perfectly with a single controller (i.e. the N64 controller “E”, “W”, and “3”), others are a bit more of a stretch. (He’s actually looking for advice on a new “G”). Still, bonus points for the Atari 2600 “Q”.

And extra, extra bonus points because Varun plans on making a version of the font available for download soon. I plan on writing all of my business correspondence with it.
