Fresh on the heels of announcing a new version of their Nu Sans font, Scooter Graphics has announced an update to their Nu Font Pack. The font set includes the popular Nu Sans font, along with Nu Seriff and a host of others. According to Scooter Graphics:
The Nu Font Pack 1.4 contains some of Scooter Graphicsi most popular fonts: Nu Sans, Nu Serif, Nu Casual and Nu Sans Monospaced--all in one download and at a 20% discount. A demo version of the Nu Font Pack is available from:
This release adds Nu Sans Monospaced Bold to the pack. A Windows version is also available for those of us who have to work on "The Dark Side."
Nu Sans and Nu Serif were inspired by Apple Computeris Espy Sans and Espy Serif bitmap fonts. Espy Sans was supposed to appear in Copland, but instead we got Charcoal in Mac OS 8.0. Espy Serif was used by Apple for the Apple Guide. My Nu Sans and Nu Serif bring back these great-looking screen fonts in a more useful way. While the Espy fonts look jaggy when scaled to different sizes, my "Nu" fonts scale properly.
Nu Casual was inspired by another dead Apple project, the Apple Newton OS. This scalable font brings the look of the Newtonis "computer handwriting" to your Mac.
Nu Sans Monospaced is a monospaced version of Nu Sans.
The Nu Font Pack is available for US$31. You can find more information at the Scooter Graphics web site.
