Unpackaged Open Font of the Week: Selfism

Selfism is a decorative typeface that mimics the look of an electronic display (like an LED clock.) It has both a regular and a bold weight. Selfism’s homepage has an interesting type treatment – in general I think Selfism, as a decorative font, can be used to provide a retro technologically-savvy feel to non-essential text in a print layout or webpage. You could also use it in an artistic type treatment of course. Actually, to be honest, you could use it to give text a shopping receipt look… Selfism was designed by Jan Sonntag and is licensed under the Open Font License. Selfism has some coverage beyond basic Latin – the Latin Supplementary coverage is quite good but the extended Latin coverage is poor.
