A Typeface of Slimy, Squirming Letters
on 04 August 2015
A new digital typeface by Ari Weinkle is a creepy, squirming collection of alien-like letters—even its name “Feelers” makes your skin crawl. Weinkle created the font after becoming intrigued with the light and texture features in his 3D-modeling software, first drawing up the typeface in 2D, and later rendering them in 3D and adding motion. The result is lifelike wiggling letters that, from afar, look like brushstrokes from a rainbow paint brush but, up close, could be something grown in an illegal lab.
