I am new to Sketch. I have a shape, and I would like to give it a "pixelated" look, a bit like the letter Y below (in contrast to the B letter, which is not pixelated).

enter image description here

How can I do this (apart from 100% manually) please?

EDIT: I realized, reading @billiy Kerr's answer, that my question was not phrased properly.

Taking the "BYT" word as an example, I would like to pixelate only one of the letters, not the others. This makes the task more difficult since it means I can't take e.g., a bitmap font (as Billy suggested). If I did, then all the characters would be pixelated.

So, starting with a a regular font, is there any way to pixelate some character in this font?

    Not relevant to your question, but how do you come to the conclusion that the "T" is not 'pixelated'?

If you don't want to do anything manually, you could find a bitmap font, perhaps like this one called "Upheaval" by Ænigma, from Dafont. They have quite a few to choose from.

  • thanks for this answer. Unfortunately I was not v. clear in the first place. I edited my question correspondingly.
