If you are using your Raspberry Pi with a smaller screen you may want to change the font used on the command line to make it easier to read. I usually do this when I am using various portable LCD screens (eg the HDMIPi).
Which method you use is up to you. I tend to use Method 1 the first time I change the defaults and then Method 2 if I need to make a quick change at a later date. Method 1 is actually possible even if the current font size is unreadable as you can follow the screenshots above and do most of it with guess work!
While all science fiction stories are obviously not based in the future, I wanted to focus on recommending fonts that provide a timeless feel. Designs that give a clean and modern look. Something that will still look futuristic to an audience 30 years from now. Even if that audience is strictly AI robots we created that eventually took over the world and killed all of us. (Hey, you never know.)
Perhaps to the surprise of many, these two terms are not entirely interchangeable. A typeface is actually a family of fonts, often times from the same designer. For example, the Futura typeface was designed by Paul Renner in 1927 and has a font family consisting of different weights and styles (bold, medium, italic), each one of those being a different font Get itWhen designing a title, doing something as simple as changing the font of a typeface can communicate a very different feel to an audience.
The difference between a typeface and a font is only the tip of the iceberg in regards to the complexity of title design. Creators that ignore this area of design are missing out on a huge creative opportunity. However, you have to know how to do it right.
Designed in the early 1950s as a modern interpretation of sans serif letterforms, Eurostile was initially called Microgramma and was drawn as an all-cap typeface. Nearly ten years after its creation, lowercase characters were added. The design was completed in 1962 and renamed Eurostile. Microgramma and Eurostile were both released originally as fonts of handset metal type. Later they were interpreted as fonts for phototypesetting, dry transfer letterings and finally as digital fonts.
ITC Benguiat is the brainchild of Ed Benguiat, who is well known in the graphic design world. Benguiat has created more than 600 fonts and worked on some of the most famous movie titles of the last century. He helped usher in the era of digital fonts, including his signature ITC Benguiat typeface.
This font is perfect in the wildly popular Netflix show, Stranger Things. Creative studio Imaginary Forces won an Outstanding Main Title Design Emmy for their work on the project. They based the design off of old Stephen King paperbacks. 153554b96e
