Pixel Noir Bitmap Font by Mirz123 Pixel Noir Bitmap Font by Mirz123
:stupidme: Why do I do this to myself?

I was working on the web layout for my fiction site and wanted a retro font for the navigation buttons. Since I incorporated a lot of pixel-art into the design, I felt that a retro bitmap font would work best. However, I simply could not find one in the old movie lettering style I wanted. After getting quite frustrated, I did what I usually do...set about making my own. Of course, I couldn't settle for just making a quick, straight character set, so I ended up making a 5 version full font family.

You can see this font used in the weblayout here on my Alt account ---> [link]

This font contains 5 different fonts--the main font and 4 variations. I did pixel versions of the 2 most popular noir font styles: the blocky "movie" version and the thin, curved version. There is also a small version which I created specifically for emoti-art and tiny pixel-art.

Note that I know some of the letters are not styled in their classic form, namely the capital A. However, I had to make modifications of the type in order for it to work in pixel form. I'm actually proud of the tweaks as it gives the font my unique flair.

Also, note that some of the "rounded" tall caps do have a bit of a blockiness. That was unavoidable given the nature of pixel fonts. However, a little manual anti-aliasing cleans them up very nicely.

:bulletgreen: To see more of my pixel fonts, check out this folder ---> [link]

This font is free-use. You don't have to link back to this page if you use it, but it would be polite if you did. Also, I love to see how people use my resources and I'll add the deviation to my special folder. You may also re-distribute the font as long as you don't make money and all the files and read-me are included.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Important Stuff:

This is a full font set, featuring 5 fonts in the same family. All include basic symbols/punctuation. The zip file includes the fonts, a readme file, plus a copy of the graphic above so you can see the full set. When using a graphics program, this font works best at 6pts (8px).

:aww: This font is free use for personal and commercial projects. Commercial use does have some limitations. Please see [link] (this page) for terms and more details.

** These fonts are tested by me prior to release. However, if you find a problem when using, please let me know as I'll be happy to fix them and re-release. ***

This is amazing. Not only did you do an awesome pixel version of a really font....you did it 4 more times! Miss Over Achiever! :giggle: With the different versions, this is such a complete and useful font set. Really....brilliant work. :nod:

Naw, not over-achiever, just trying to be time-prudent. I knew if I made one version, I'd want to edit it later and then would end up pulling it up and making a new set. So, I just cut to the chase and did it at once. :giggle:

Thanks.

This will come in very useful :plotting:
Excellent work, I have to admit it does look a lot like the style you wanted, related to it straight away
In fact, I was trying to make this type of font a few days ago for something..but gave up on it, this will be a great help :heart:

I have to tell you, it was VERY difficult and I did nearly give up 2-3 times. But I was determined. And once I got the base set done, I figured "what the heck" and did the other versions. I always like having options with fonts, so I like to make lots of options in my own.

What a lovely comment. Thank you. :hug:

Actually, I looked all over for a pixel version and couldn't find one. Then I realized why after I started pixelling this one out. It was very difficult doing it in pixel form. I struggled with many of the letters. But, in the end, it's one of the fonts I'm most proud of because there was so much work involved.
