Arcade Game Typography - Softcover


  • Arcade Game Typography is an exploration of the emerging world of typography, the pixel typeface
  • The authors Toshi Omigari and Kiyonori Muroga explore the colour and resolution limitations facing video game designers of the '70s, '80s and '90s. Previously, each letter had to exist in a small pixel grid, ultimately stimulating incredible creativity as artists implemented clever techniques to create elegant character sets within a tiny canvas
  • This book presents typefaces on a dynamic and decorative grid, taking reference from high-end type specimens while adding a suitably playful twist
