If you were dropped into an unfamiliar mall in the 1980s and ’90s, you wouldn’t need a map to spot the arcade. You could hardly ignore it, with its machines flashing bright lights and thumping out loud sound effects, each one vying for your attention, and ultimately, your quarters. Arcades were designed to be noticed, more so for their unique graphics that has become a cult classic in the present day.
Today, we have a font for you that is heavily inspired by the digital aesthetics of arcade video games – specifically the widely popular Space Invaders. Pixer is a typeface constructed entirely from pixels, which follows the pioneering bitmap font technology for low-resolution screens but has been designed so as to not make you compromise, whether you’re working with low or high-resolution screens. Available in one font style only, the display font is sure to excite the gamer in you with its unique retro personality, reminiscent of the 70s. The only way that Pixer won’t remind you of arcade games is that you won’t have to shell out a penny to own it. We thank Fontfabric for bringing this amazing font to us!
