Why FortuneFonts fonts?
Low cost electronic displays have a fixed number of segments that can be turned on or off to represent different symbols. A digital watch would be the most common example.
Fonts typically available for depicting electronic displays are often in the artistic style of these common LED or LCD displays. They provide the look-and-feel, but fall short when technical accuracy is required. Failure to represent an accurate and consistent representation of the real thing can be a cringe-worthy experience for the product design and marketing team, or even the hobbyist for that matter.
To solve this problem, FortuneFonts has released a range of fonts that accurately depict the displays typically found on low cost electronic devices: watches, answering machines, car stereos, alarm clocks, microwaves and toys. These fonts come with numbers, letters and symbols predefined. However, they also allow you to create your own segment combinations for the custom symbols you need.
When producing manuals, marketing material and user interfaces, accuracy is an all-or-nothing concept.
Licensing options include print, webpage, electronic publication (e.g. pdf and eBooks) and mobile apps. Select using the drop-down box on the product page when placing the order
All fonts come with a user manual to show you how to turn these fonts into realistic displays according to your own design, in the manner of the images above.
These articles explain in more detail how to achieve realistic effects with these fonts .
