We created the these fonts for our Bitblox alphabet blocks. They were inspired by the low-res pixel lettering seen on the computer screens and in video games of yore. The fonts are guaranteed to induce flashbacks in anyone who’s been exposed to consoles / terminals / IBM / DOS / AS/400 graphics in the olden days.
Each Bitblox character is built on a grid of pixels known as a matrix. The matrix creates constraint, but that very constraint yields interesting and evocative forms.
REGULAR is the basic type, the vanilla flavor of the group, and is contained within a 9×9 pixel grid.
OUTLINE is built on an 11×11 grid and layers up with the Vanilla style to create fun two-tone type!
DIMENSIONAL has a built in drop-shadow to give it a 3D POP!
EMBIGGENED is a the chunky bold weight, and it packs a punch.
MONOSPACE is a tabular version of the original Vanilla style. Robots (and programmers) like this style the best.
BLOCKED encloses each glyph in a cozy pixel-block.
DINGBATS is a complete collection of our nostalgically crafted symbols.
STACKABLE is a combination of Regular, Outlined, and Dimensional allowing you to create colorful color-ways that are perfectly aligned.
