Over 500 downloads

Today Nidus sans was downloaded for the 500th time. It's been less than three months since the font was released, and during this time, not a single day has passed without it being downloaded at least once.

It's great to see that so many people have taken an interest in this font. It's been featured in a lot of collections and font lists over the last few months, and we're very happy that so many people have been helpful in spreading the word.

We're currently working on an updated version of the typeface. This extended version will include lowercase letters, as well as some additional punctuation and special glyphs.

Nidus sans released to the public domain

Today we released Nidus Sans as a pay-what-you-want download at Gumroad.

The font was completed over the course of one month. It has its roots in NiDBiLDs logo, which I first prototyped five years ago as part of a school project. I consider the font to be a kind of extension of the logotype. If you write N!DB!LD in Nidus Sans, it will look like the logotype (Except for the flipped D).

It's a modern sans serif with a futuristic touch. The futuristic effect is accomplished by a few different design choices:

  • The single sided rounding of letters. As you can see in the headlines on this page, letters like C, S, and G are only curved in the non-terminal end. C and G are treated as cut versions of D, and not as cut versions of O, as in most fonts.
  • Acute angles are cut to form a square end.
  • All lines are the same width. Some exceptions are made for detailed extended latin symbols.
  • Uniformity of shape was preferred to convention. This is why W looks like an upside down M. The principle I followed was that glyphs that could look like each other should look like each other.

    The font is available for pay-what-you-want download here. Go crazy. While you do, think of us.
