(x) Wonderful Pixel/Bitmappy - Lilany {Kemie}

I found this at Knitty.com and the editor REFUSES to tell anyone her secret font. I found a freeware typeface that is very similar called Teacher’s Pet, but it doesn’t connect nicely the way this does.


I swear I’ve seen that before…

I guess not, I was thinking of Kemie Guaida’s. It’s close, but not quite:

There’s also Miguel Hern

Hi Kemie. Great stuff. But I couldn’t find lilabit on your pixilate site. Can you post a link? Thanks.

lilabit is not yet finished, sadly. I
wouldnt assume any inspiration, stephen, as strong similarities are inevitable in bitmap/pixel fonts…

Wow, thanks for the link Kemie! Thanks to everyone that suggested other similar typefaces, you are a most helpful bunch! :-)

Bangalore is still the world’s best small pixel script.
But that’s not it either.

Didn’t find that font, but in searching for it I stumbled upon a really nice collection of diverse pixel fonts. Now I can actually see myself trying pixel fonts in a web design, whereas before I thought it was just a trend I was hoping would go away.

Try superscript from www.vectorize.de
It’s not the one but its good.

You know what I just realized? Making an automatic bitmap font ID system should be possible, and not too hard. I mean once you’ve compiled a database of bitmap fonts, or at least their distinctive glyphs.


another similar one (and imo nicer) here:

Even if I never find out what the one I am looking for is, everyone here has offered really great suggestions and in some cases, some that are even better. Thanks!

I found it!!!!
its called lilany, and you can get it at:

(Strange… very similar face and name to my lilabit :-) )

Nice work, kemie. Yes, I can’t help but suspect that Pixelyn
was “inspired” by your work (assuming Lilany was designed
after Lilabit.)
