Numbers and symbols often end up as an afterthought when it comes to fonts. So, let's turn the tables and make some 'fonts' that exclusively feature numbers and symbols.

You must include all of the following characters:

1234567890
!?@%&


You may optionally include other symbols, but any additional symbols must appear on the standard US keyboard layout. Do not include any letters though.

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Min 4.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.
