MD Eight

An exploration of reduction and scale in type design. MD Eight is an unconventional type family centred around an 8×8 pixel font. This germinal pixel style is supported by display cuts in three optical sizes, which transform its staid construction into an impactful, expressive set of typefaces.
 
We made a text adventure game to show off MD Eight Pixel (and its swash caps).
