Remember the yesteryears? The 1980s?

Those were the days when blocky and sharp-edged texts and images were in trend – and since in those days, technology was not much advanced as today, so, text and images (in a clunky form) had to be fitted in the screen pixel by pixel.

Born out of necessity, they were perfect for low-resolution displays – but you know what, today, it has become quite of a trend to include pixelated-typefaces in any design projects. Because of their outdated styles, visual interest, and peculiar element, they have garnered quite a following.

If, you too, are on the hunt to include pixel-typefaces in your design projects, then, you can check out the following list – not only they are unique, but they are also seen to be quite popular among the designers.

8-Bit Wonder

Designed by Joiro Hatgaya, the pixel font ‘8-Bit Wonder is inspired by game graphics of the yesteryears – think 1980s.

Designed with a strong and heavy look, this font includes a full set of letterforms and numerals followed by symbols. If you are looking for such a font that you can show on book covers and headers, then, this is the font you should go for.

The font is free to download and can be used for both personal and commercial projects.

SuperScript

Designed by Sven StŸber, the font ‘SuperScript’, unlike its name, is a pixel font – and though it’s a pixel font, it is designed to be fluid and have the look of a script font.
