Alphabet Topography – The Typeface

Overview

This monotype typeface created by Synoptic Office, where the height of the letterforms is determined by how often a letter is used, is definitely a looker!

As described on Synoptic’s website, “this typeface maps the rhythmic ebb and flow of English.”

I find this fascinating, I hope you do too!

Very creative. I love the relativity between how frequent it is used and the height.

This is awesome, this is pushing the limits.
