Pixel Font Love #2

Sun May 12, 2013, 7:34 AM
:iconpixelfontlovers: pixelfontlovers is a Group dedicated to Bitmap Fonts.  The benefit of bitmap/pixel fonts is that they are readable at very small sizes.  However, unlike regular fonts, they do not upsize smoothly, but instead keep their blocky shape.  Bitmap fonts are often used in pixel-art, emoticons, Flash projects, as well as deviantART stamps and IDs.

It's been a year since our last feature, so I thought it was high-time for another one. I thought it would be nice to start this new article off with a quote on the subject. What I didn't expect is to find so many wonderful words about fonts. Here's a collection of my favorites.

  “Figures are the most shocking things in the world. The prettiest little squiggles of black looked at in the right light and yet consider the blow they can give you upon the heart.” ~ H.G. Wells, The History of Mr. Polly

  " Geometry can produce legible letter but art alone makes them beautiful. Art begins where geometry ends, and imparts to letters a character trascending mere measurement. " ~ Paul Standard

  " Type is like music in having its own beauty, and in being beautiful as an accompaniment and interpretation ; and typography can be used to express a state of the soul, like the other arts and crafts." ~ J.H. Mason

  " I am really interested in type that isn't perfect. Type that reflects more truly the imperfect language of an imperfect world inhabited by imperfect beings. " ~ Barry Deck

  " Some people say that letters exist to be read and therefore the things that interfere with legibility should be discouraged. (This is a bit like saying that the purpose of liquor is to get you drunk. If it were right, people would swig metal polish, and the farmers of Cognac,Burgundy, and Champagne grow potatoes.) " ~ Gunnlaugur S.E. Briem

  " Faces of type are like men’s faces.  They have their own expression; their complexion and peculiar twists and turns of line identify them immediately to friends, to whom each is full of identity.” ~ J.L. Frazier

  " Typography needs to be audible.  Typography needs to be felt. Typography needs to be experiences. " ~ Helmut Schmid

  " Typographical design should perform optically what the speaker creates through voice and gesture of his thoughts. " ~ El Lizzitsky
