Pexel grotesk by Marcello Raffo
Pexel grotesk born, like most of the font playing around with shapes and letters. The idea was to create a good looking pixel font. On the internet it is hard to find a pixel type with the right proportion and with that thing that distinguishes it from the see of pixel and block shapes. Pexel Grotesk wants to imitate the letter dimension and proportion of a grotesque type while remaining inside his strict grid. Some of the letters are not designed as we think they should be constructed as a pixel font. This helps the type to be different, but consistent at the same time. The roundness of the edges, that could sound like an oxymoron for a pixel type, gives at the type an interesting shape, especially if it is used in large format.
