Beautiful Bitmap Type

Tomorrow is my last day of teaching Typography. The students have all designed zines about various typographic subjects – and I’m exited to see the final results and to have introduced them to the importance of good typograhpy. It also gives me a perfect occasion to share this collection of Beautiful Bitmaps. It’s curated by Uppercase magazine – who invited 26 typographers, designers and illustrators to make beautiful bitmaps by taking this vestigial part of digital type—the bitmap—and making it into something to be newly appreciated. You can also purchase prints of the works here at Society6.
