Get ready to be transported back in time with Algol—the low-resolution display typeface that takes inspiration from classic computer pixel fonts. But don’t be fooled, Algol is not just your typical pixel typeface– it adds a touch of elegance to the digital age.

By overlapping intersections with rounded corners, Algol creates a softened effect that sets it apart from other pixel fonts. Say goodbye to the sharp, precise pixel junctions and hello to a font that works perfectly for vinyl-cut signage systems and other cases where a more gentle look is desirable.

With Algol, you have the choice of three members of the family—Algol Regular, Algol VII, and Algol IX. For a truly dramatic look, layer Algol Regular and Algol VII in inventive color combinations that will leave an impact on anyone who lays their eyes on it.

Algol IX, on the other hand, is more relaxed in its spacing, allowing the spectator to look directly through it. But don’t be fooled by its simplicity—hidden alternate letters with closed counters open up a whole universe of design options for you to explore.

So what are you waiting for? Let Algol take you on a journey to the past, all while creating stunning designs that are sure to impress.
