Artist Creates Font Based Entirely On His Own Beard


Are you into beards? Do guys with facial hair get you going? Then you're in luck, because now you can even type to your bearded-heart's content with a new font based entirely on one man's mustachioed look.

Gizmodo reports:

The brainchild of New York City-based designer Michael Allen, the Alphabeard has seen him carefully sculpt every character from his own facial hair. Bold and medium versions of the font were created at different stages of growth. Admittedly, not all the characters are super clear but, c'mon, it was carved out of hair.

  1. Slow news day? Just because no one has done something before doesn't mean it's a good idea. What's next, a placenta font? Jeez.

  2. I find the "E" confusing and the "Q" looks like a lower case "A".

  3. I kind of like it. I agree, though, that the 'E' and 'Q' are the ones that definitely don't work.

  4. Hmmm. A font that is basically illegible but is based on facial hair. Makes sense.

  5. I, agree with the prior comments. This is not newsworthy.

  8. As a typographer, I'd say this new font isn't very-well designed. Reading the teaser headline, I had imagined something entirely different. It could have been done better. Maybe it's beta and will be refined in the future.

  9. To the haters:
    Exactly what creative, fun and original thing have you done today?
