A common characteristic of these fonts is the rasterization of the letter forms in round or square points. The technical limits of the analogue world often serve as the model here: whether it is the early, poorly resolved matrix printers, coarse screen fonts from the dawn of the computer era or current thermal printers in cash registers. Fonts at county fairs or in bars, which are created with numerous light bulbs, can serve as earlier, non-computer models, for example.
Depending on the analogue equivalent, pixel fonts have a digital retro charm, or recall the bright world of video game arcades and the early neon signs. Use these fonts for posters, album covers or extravagant logos, for example.
