The Scratch Font is the font used in the Scratch Logo and all associated indicia.
The font was included with versions of Scratch prior to Scratch 1.3. It is also available in Scratch 2.0.

This font was not by the Scratch Team, it was actually created by a non-Scratch user called, “pizzadude” under a different name.


I contacted pizzadude and he said MIT purchased the rights to the font a while back, that's how come they can trademark it.

Scratch is non-profit and based in the US so it is fair use!

Judging from some information, maybe Scratch Font is Black boys on mopeds Font by pizzadude(Jakob Fischer).
