Pixeluxe font family


Designed by Jan Erasmus in 2010
Pixel fonts are once again out in full force. They have taken over airports, railway stations, cell phones as well as every small digital devise that uses text to convey information. Due to their current importance, I decided to have a look at the pixel font and take it to the next level. Conceptually it was based on some of the most clichéd symbols that designers use according to Google. Each pixel in a character was replaced with a symbol. Thereby imbedding specific meaning into the font. The symbols also bloated the data. In the case of the cap 'A' in 'Death' font, it has 95 times more data than Helvetica cap 'A'. That is why I could only output this family as PostScript Type 1 fonts that works on screen and prints. Attempting to output it as TrueType which doubles the curve nodes, did not work.
