Bitcount Mono

This variant can be used if there is vertical no limit (e.g. if the pixels are made from stickers, flower-pots or other elements) and if accents must be best readable. Basically the Mono glyphs are identical to the Grid in appearance and spacing, but the vertical size of accents expand the required matrix to 10 pixels vertical. This expansion also makes extended ascenders and descenders possible as OT-Feature. Monospaced variants to not have kerning available.

Image description

The Mono matrix measures 1/10 of the EM square for each pixel position.  In Single glyphs, stems are defined by one pixel. This makes thinner letters, but also leaves too much space in diagonals. The Light weight pixels have a diameter of 44/1000 of the EM size and a distance of 56/1000. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square. Circle pixels can be used to for letters with sushi rolls. Or flower pots.

The Italic variant is identical to Roman, with a slant of 14/100 angle. Italic glyphs with Circle pixels just have them shifted over a 14/100 angle. There are no “slanted” circles.

Image description

In the Mono variant all accents take the vertical space they need, different from Grid.  In the Double variant, stems are made from 2 pixels where possible. This simulates the “contrast” of normal letters. In the Light weight the pixels are small, 44/1000 of the EM size. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square. Circle pixels can be used to for letters with sushi rolls. Or flower pots.

All Mono variants support OpenType features for extend ascenders [ss01], extended capitals [ss02] and extended descenders [ss03].  Single variants have a full condensed glyph set, accessable as OpenType feature [ss07]. In the Book weight the pixels are larger than Light and smaller than Regular, 72/1000 of the EM size. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square.

Image description

All Mono variants support OpenType features for extend ascenders [ss01], extended capitals [ss02] and extended descenders [ss03]. In order to bridge the gap of fixed width spacing, some narrow glyphs have added serifs, where most of the Bitcount is Sans. The Double is how Bitcount started: adding contrast to even the smallest pixel matrix. In the Book weight the pixels are larger than Light and smaller than Regular, 72/1000 of the EM size. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square. Circle pixels can be used to for letters with tennis balls. Or eggs.

The Mono variant forces each glyph inside the width of 6 pixels, including “m” and “W”.  To fill diagonal holes in some glyphs, the “constrast-pixel” can be switched on by OpenType feature [ss04]. The Regular weight pixels have a diameter of 1/10 of the EM size, excactly touching each other. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square.

In the Mono variant all accents take the vertical space they need, different from Grid.  Different from the Single, does Double not support the condensed OpenType feature, due to the lack of horizontal space. In the Regular weight the pixels are larger than Book and smaller than Medium, 1/10 of the EM size. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square. Circle pixels can be used to for letters with sushi rolls. Or flower pots.

Mono has the same vertical spacing as Prop.  In Single variants there is an addition “constrast-pixel” in some glyphs to fill diagonal holes. It can be switches on as OpenType feature [ss04]. In the Medium weight the pixels are larger than Regular and smaller than Bold, 128/1000 of the EM size. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square. The size of Medium Circle pixels, creates automatic natural ink-traps on diagonals.
