Mota Pixel™ began as small, simple pixel font with simple roots. But it then grew into a monster family containing three weights, loads of typographic features, got tons of layers, dingbats galore, and a bunch more. And it’s all available for FREE!

A Peek Inside

There are three primary fonts – Light, Regular, & Bold – and each contains a whopping 2,944 glyphs per file! Add to that, 33 layer styles for each weight and you get a gigantic family of 102 fonts containing 300,288 glyphs! Did we mention yet that this is all free?

Mota Pixel Light
The Light’s style is monolinear and reminiscent of an upright italic.

Mota Pixel Regular
The Regular weight has a striking contrast with a 2×1 pixel ratio between the verticals & horizontals.

Mota Pixel Bold
The Bold is chunky, rough, and as heavy as legibly possible for this pixel size.




Pushing Mota Pixel over the top of awesomeness are 33 layer styles per weight. These can be combined in ridiculous ways for fun results.

These Puppies Are Loaded

Just because these are free fonts doesn’t mean they’re cheap. All the fonts are jam packed with tons of language support, layer-able styles, dingbats, and OpenType features.


Letter Shapes

There are 5 character shapes for each letter: uppercase, lowercase, small caps, petite caps, & unicase. This applies of course also to the accented characters and the Greek and Cyrillic scripts. Plus there are bonus sets of upper & lowercase letters in black & white circles.
