Maxxi - Another New Pixel Font by Joe Gillespie

maxxi fonts - regular, thin, light, bold. Fonts by Joe Gillespie, collage by Shirley Kaiser, SKDesignsIf I didn’t know better, I’d think Joe Gillespie read my mind. His latest pixel font, Maxxi, is 20px size, and I’d hoped someone would make a pixel font soon a little larger like this. Joe’s new Maxxi font is the latest in his growing collection of pixel fonts.

Joe also wrote a helpful tutorial on working with pixel fonts, covering sizing and kerning issues, turning off anti-aliasing, working with Flash and more.

Interested in fonts or seeing more pixel fonts? has annotated resources covering only the best font sites out there, including pixel fonts.
