Experimental typographic project of a typeface totally composed by mechanical elements. Plus some "bonus tracks" like posters and animations.
Mekkanika is a typeface inspired by old mechanics technical drawings, the steampunk visual world, and modern machinery, mixed and merged all together to form letters completely made by these elements, creating a mechanical look like typeface.

All based on the letter shapes of the Din Alternate Black font.

Hope you like this project, for first you will see a full gallery of posters showing each letter's design,
then some animations and a series of posters inspired by this mechanical style.

Enjoy and get ready to scroll down (a lot).
An animated hyper-fast images sequence of the posters previously displayed.
Another animation showing the composition process of the letters, starting from filling the space of the letter base (Din Alternate Black font) with the mechanical elements and then adjusting colours and tones to the final layout.
Here another quick animated gif showing each mechanical element I've used to compose the letters.
Not related to the typeface but however based on the same mechanical composition,
here a small tribute to one of my fav series and cartoon characters universe ever.

So here some posters about them.

Hope you like this not so typographical crossover.
