Background

Mayberry was designed for use in set top TV devices and therefore salutes arguably one of the most popular TV show in history with its name. Originally designed to emulate the technical behavior of Tiresias™ ‘PCFont’ and ‘ScreenFont’ styles, its designer has taken the liberty to improve upon its readability and aesthetics. Counter shapes are left open to prevent filling in when rendered on low resolution devices; a larger pan-European character set with preferred accented character designs are provided; and more care has been given to design subtleties which are the hallmark of a good type design.
