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 being a Monospace font means that every glyph will stay within the matrix. Making the font ideal for setting digital type, numbers/numerals, and other technical applications where uniform spacing is required.
The Bitblox Mono font is available for free with a Personal License. Other options are available.
Bitblox Mono is a monospace font containing 246 glyphs: with Western and Eastern European characters, Mathematical symbols, and more.
