I’ve had a few requests for some number tiles that fit the Osmo Numbers style. I’ve used the Geneva (Mac only) font again but this time have added an outline to simulate the bolder typeface being used in the original tiles. I doubt very much they would be recognised by the Osmo app if you used a printout of these to replace the actual tiles, but the intended use for these is to create your own Osmo Numbers resources.
If you want to match colours, the hex codes for the colours I’ve used are:
- Red: #EC4A4A
- Blue: #0677D6
- Orange: #FE892D
- Purple: #C142A5
- Pink: #E02DA0

In addition to the uppercase alphabet tiles I have made some lowercase tiles. I plan on using these to create a Words for Osmo game where my son has to make lowercase letters with uppercase ones, like this:
I’ve saved the images in the Osmo for Words red and blue colours in three different sizes. You can download them by clicking the button below.

I recently bought my youngest son an Osmo interactive game system for iPad. One of the awesome things about this system is that you can create your own albums of images to be used in the ‘Words for Osmo’ app. To start off, I’ve created a set of images of the alphabet consistent with the style of the tiles used in the game. I plan on using these to create images with sight words like this:
It took me a while to find the correct font, I’m almost 100% sure that Words for Osmo uses the Geneva typeface which you will have if you use a Mac.

This giraffe is a combination of three blind contour drawings which were overlapped and coloured. Unfortunately, I lost the original artwork in the Sketchbook Pro app. The colours were supposed to be darker.
