In my spare time I like to design colourful characters that are made up of letters, numbers and punctuation marks. I find it a fun way to get to know a typeface. In this series of playful Type Characters each character was built from a different typeface. Meet Ziggy, Albert, Ahmed, Roman, Nigel and François.
Superhero Ziggy is composed out of Ode, a typeface by Supertype (DE) • Royal Albert is composed out of Peignot, a typeface by A.M. Cassandre • Coach Ahmed is composed out of Mr Eaves XL, a typeface by Zuzana Licko • Creepy Roman is composed out of Eskapade Fraktur, a typeface by Type Together • Lieutenant Nigel is composed out of Caslon, a typeface by Carol Twombly • Artist François is composed out of Sanvito, a typeface by Robert Slimbach.
