SB Websnap is a pixel font designed to be legible at very small sizes. Although SB Liquid and SB Message both found uses online, SB Websnap was the first SelfBuild Type Foundry typeface designed specifically for screen. It was designed primarily for small text, such as copyright and photo credits, legal disclaimers, or on banner adverts where space is limited. The grid used for the design is the minimum possible for a pixel font with good legibility, with a capital height of just five pixels. The typeface is optimised for use at 10px. The first version of this typeface was a capital-only font, but lower case letters and additional glyphs were later added. SB Websnap was designed for use in pixel graphics and as a Flash compatible pixelfont, both of which were popular as designers experimented with ways to improve the way the web looked and functioned. Later, a rounded version of the original pixelfont was added, opening up it to use as a headline typeface for today’s high-DPI screens.
