I needed a pixel font that was optimized in space but still comfortably readable, so I created Simpixel.
As three by five (3x5) seemed a reasonable size for capital letters and numbers (cf. A, B, E, S; 2, 3, 8 etc.), I tried my best. This didn't always work, as particular letters naturally need more horizontal space (cf. M, W; N, Q), such that some ended up four or five pixels wide (Though I have created a monospaced version - Simpixel Mono - where I managed to also condense those letters to 3x5).
I then worked on the small letters and eventually the rest of the Latin and even the Greek letters, just for fun. Of course, the less basic letters tend to be larger in size. Emoticons, pictograms and miscellaneous symbols fall into that category too (cf. ½, ⅓, ⅔, ¼, ⅛, ⅜, ⅝, ⅞, ⅟, etc).
With all that being said, thanks for checking this out!
60's - 70's intergallactic television shows were the inspiration for this font, while it originated as a simple Arial Bold font. Stretched and squeezed through space and time itself, this typeface is sure to have geeks and nerds alike on the edge of their seats and begging for more.
This font is majoritively made up of rounded edges, save for a few sharp edges to add definition to certain characters. Made with simplicity in mind.
A font designed for small sizes. Blockle is my most readable text font yet.
It's Monday, so I really didn't want to work too hard on this one.
I spent a lot of time making this font, it is based On the premise that too many fonts are way to ambiguous, so this is a fix for that, also I have added a copyright symbol, I replaced the vertical bar with the copyright symbol, because as far as I know the vertical bar symbol is rarely if ever used...( I have not seen it used in allmost anything I have viewed or read in all my life, except that it is there in the font character listing, so why is it there? certainly a copyright symbol would be more useful don't you think?) as for the "blockiness" of the C in the copyright symbol, keep in mind, that it is designed to have a maximum width of 9 pixels, so for what it is I think it is good, basically you cant get a smaller bitmaped based copyright symbol where it is as crisp and where the c is not pointed like a less than symbol and the c is not "touching" the circle it is in which would make it harder to read... so if you do see fit to use it I hope you are happy with it...
This project has changed my view of type by being patient and to really think about how the typeface will be protrayed in a product. My typeface reminds me of an "old-school" videogame. I had alot of fun with this project because I got familier with the tools in this program very quickly. I hope you enjoy my font, Funky Pixels!
Is it Ironic that I spent a lot of time making a minimalistic font? Maybe not...
In any case, this is a font I made with a challenge of keeping every character within a 5x5 block size (4x4 blocks for the lowercase letters)
The only character NOT within a 5x5 square is the @ character. It somehow ended up a little wide.
A rounded simplistic monospace font with digital-looking numbers and some special characters made for use with English or German language.
This is a somewhat bold font that is free for use by anyone.
