A downloadable font

Zoom Zoom is a font with janky sci-fi stylings. It has many dubious aesthetic choices, some due to my total inexperience at type design, some due to FontStruct — I like a free tool as much as the next penniless asshole, but the web remains a place where complex application-style UIs at best kinda work. Its tools are a bit limited, a bit janky, and I think I hit a few bugs.

Nonetheless: voilà. Sufficient uppercase letters (only) for Anglophone use — I might or might not get around to adding lowercase! — numerals and punctuation, skewed towards punctuation I regularly use (so the usual, plus a full complement of programmers' brackets, the Unicode bullet point bullet, and en and em dashes).

(Now with the uppercase letters duplicated as "lowercase" to simplify using the font! Also a sprinkling of rudimentary kerning! And I fixed the horrible "8" and "K" glyphs!

And I finally worked out how to add ligatures in FontForge!)

If you update from an older download, please be aware that the font's filename has changed, from zoom-zoom.ttf to Zoom Zoom Regular.ttf, because it cuts steps out of my current workflow. You may need to delete the old file, if you have it installed.
