    Arcade Game Typography

    Arcade Game Typography presents readers with a fascinating new world of typography: the pixel typeface. Video game designers of the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s faced color and resolution limitations that stimulated incredible creativity. With each letter having to exist in a small pixel grid, artists began to use 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. Arcade Game Typography recreates that visual aesthetic, fizzing with life and color. Featuring pixel typefaces carefully selected from the first decades of arcade video games, Arcade Game Typographypresents a completist survey of a previously undocumented outsider typography movement, accompanied by insightful commentary from author Toshi Omagari, a Monotype typeface designer himself. Gathering an eclectic range of typography, from hit games such as Super Sprint, Marble Madness, and Space Harrier to countless lesser-known gems, Arcade Game Typography is a vivid nostalgia trip for gamers, designers, and illustrators alike.
  9. Not a typeface: That said, an approximation could be Doriss Girls (spelling “2 1Il|): download at MyFonts download at MyFonts Or Trade Gothic Display (spelling “2i”), but you would need to add the lighter inline: download at MyFonts For better accuracy, barring drawing it from scratch, it could probably be better starting with a suitable (in terms of width and weight) solid or inline sans serif with a comparable construction of |2| (using |I| or |l| for |1|) and adding the bevelling with your graphics program of choice. Jeff Levine, to make just one example, seems to offer several of this kind of sign-painting-inspired designs.
  10. This is a Coca-Cola Aisle Marker Sign used to steer customers to Coke products in a grocery store. This sign is probably from the 1940s-1950s. I want to replicate the white circles with numbers as those are missing from my 2 signs. Can someone identify this font for me? Looks three dimensional with 5 steps up to the lighter green center line. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Lauren

    A New Home for Letterform Archive

    “A few months ago our landlord informed us that they wanted Letterform Archive out of the building. We urgently need a new home. Luckily, we found the one we always imagined. Now you can make it a reality.”
  14. lèvres rouges: Can anybody identify this font? Many thanks
  15. Those are pixel graphics, not fonts. For some recreations of vintage video games typefaces, you could start here: The Video Game Font Preservation Society.
  16. Type Directors Club Type Drives Culture Conference 2019, SVA Theatre, New York City, March 1, 2019 In this video, TDC Medalist Fiona Ross presents the keynote address and discusses her long career focused on affording visible voices to global linguistic communities.
  17. Super C is a Konami NES title from 1990. I'm looking for the font from the word "SUPER" in the title. Soldier Blade is a Hudson Soft game from 1992 on the TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine. I'm looking for the font in the image that says, "CARAVAN STAGE" or "CHALLENGE STAGE." Example video of Super C: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGml5zkmRXg Example videos of Soldier Blade: https://archive.org/details/PC_Engine_Longplay_147_Soldier_Blade_Special and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTUCP9I3naw Looking for a digital version of these fonts. Commercial fonts are fine, but a free alternative would be nice. I'm planning on using these to create a retro video game title screen of my own. Thanks.
  18. Thank you both very much! This was killing me 😉 Thanks also for the tip regarding what appears to be outlined or otherwise doctored type treatment
  19. I was given a rastered image of their logo, but I need to recreate it for vector output. I cannot find the font for this tagline. I have attached a screenshot of the font. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Here is a link to their website: https://vcmtexas.com/
  20. Other letters look a bit wonky too (|M|, for example). It seems more like an outline of some poor quality original set in Nicolas Cochin, rather than a text set using a font.
  21. That appears to be Cochin (sans Nicolas): download at MyFonts download at MyFonts
  22. You’ve probably seen it as Nicolas Cochin. Not sure which version this is though. None I found have that damaged-looking diagonal stroke in the N.
