BITBLOX IS DESIGNED BY JAMES BEALL AND PSY/OPS TYPE FOUNDRY
We created this monospace font 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.
Bitblox Mono font contains 246 glyphs, with Western and Eastern European characters, Mathematical symbols, and more.
