I have always loved and been fascinated by bitmap art and typography ever since my introduction with the Atari 2600, 8-bit Nintendo and arcade games. For me, it’s digital nostalgia. My U is based on Emigre’s Lo-Res-Twenty-One Serif (formerly known as Emigre 14). I chose to replicate it with an even older art form: pins and thread. hellvetica.net
