Feisar, designed by Paul van der Laan, was initially drawn as a 12 PPM bitmap typeface for the user-interface of the veejay application Resolume.

Since its debut the design has gradually expanded into a complete font family of several bitmap variants for use on screen and a number of outline versions – ExtraLight, Light, Regular, Medium and Bold – for use in print.

Feisar strikes a balance between two worlds. From a superficial point of view it’s a modern display typeface, but at closer inspection the construction and spacing reveal the influences of traditional type design. This makes Feisar instantly recognisable, but still very readable at smaller sizes as well.

Feisar can be bought and downloaded directly from the Bold Monday website.
