Eightbit.me will be a service to help people create 8-bit avatars. The first idea was to use images with very few selections and to use pure HTML / JS to create the characters.
Inspired by an 8-bitted Dribbble post by UK artist and designer Harry Harrison, San Francisco interactive designers Addison Kowalski, Amadeus Demarzi and Courtney Guertin took the idea to the next level by 8 bit-ing their Twitter avatars, which inevitably went viral among the tech set. Eightbit.me is the result.
