I didn’t know the ST was your fist computer! It wasn’t mine, but it was the first on which I started to develop seriously. So many great memories.
ST-DIN (Playdate font)
A downloadable asset pack
This is my own take on the classic DIN 1451 typeface, a sans-serif that is widely used for traffic, administrative and technical applications.
Late into its creation I realised it looked somewhat similar to the system font from my first computer, the Atari ST.
So I named this font ST-DIN.
That's also a reference to the Unix concept of standard input (stdin).
Yes, I really am that much of a nerd.

Actually, same for me. I’d used a Spectrum and Acorn Electron but the ST was where it all clicked.
I remember seeing the desktop for the first time: in my mind a red carpet rolled out into the stars. I will never forget that feeling that this was it.
Of course, at that time I had no idea what it was, but everything seemed within reach.
