About AF-LED7 Seg-2 Font Family

* For when you need the most realistic looking electronic display. * See User Manuals Main advantages: - Spacing between characters does not change when entering a decimal point or colon between them. - Custom characters can be produced by selecting any combination of segments to be displayed. 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, Fortune Fonts 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. Instructions in the user manual describe how to turn these fonts into realistic displays according to your own design, in the manner of the images above. myFonts cannot offer you a license to use this font in the situation where you are going to use this font to design a physical item (e.g. electronic display). However, such a license can be purchased from here.

About Fortune

Fortune Fonts was borne out of frustration-- Pete Cross' frustration at not being able to accurately depict the displays of electronic devices when producing manuals and on-screen mock-ups. Pete Cross, technical director at Fortune Fonts, explains: "fonts typically available are in the artistic style of common LED or LCD displays, but do not produce an accurate and consistent representation of the real display. To overcome this limitation, large companies employee graphic designers to produce customized fonts for their product documentation. This provides a very professional look, but at a cost that small companies or hobbyists can't afford. Fortune Fonts products are a low cost way to bring this advantage to your own projects." Fortune Fonts products come with numbers, letters and symbols predefined, but also allow you to create the exact segment combination you need for your own custom symbols. Special features are provided for inserting decimal points, colons and the top-spot, in such a way that the rest of the display remains unaffected. Now you can document and produce on-screen mock-ups in a way that does not detract from the quality of your product. A user manual is provided with each font to ensure you achieve the best possible result. Fortune Fonts also provides custom font design services: Sometimes it's worth the extra effort to achieve the individual look you need to set your product or presentation apart.
