Famous Typefaces Rearranged Into Amusing Portraits, Reveal Their Personalities
By Louise Jane Cher, 04 Jan 2016
“Grumpy Garamond becomes a sulky customer.”
Typefaces have unique personalities, and are often imagined as people.
Edinburgh-based art director Giovanni Isnenghi has created this clever series titled ‘TypeFaces Vol 1’, which explores what famous fonts would look like personified.
Their portraits are constructed by meticulously rearranging the letters of each font to form a face or body. For example, letters from Garamond makes up a strict profile, while letters from Comic Sans form a childlike drawing of a person taking an arrow to the head.
Check out the unique portraits below, and head here for the full series.

“The widely despised Comic Sans taking an arrow to the head.”
