Canvas: Pixel Type

Pixel Type character sheet

Pixel Type is a simple experiment into pixel fonts that can react to real-time parameters. Pixel Type is a brand new, monospaced, 5x5 pixel grid typeface. Currently only the uppercase characters are included, but there is a full compliment of punctuation glyphs. Pixel Type can also react to real-time jitter, that is, individual pixels of each character can be affected by a global jitter, which if taken too far will corrupt the type display beyond legibility.

You can experiment with Pixel Type in the Canvas section.
