For many designers, fonts have as much personality as the words they convey. Now, thanks to artists and designer Kate Hynes, you can put a face and backstory to your favorite typeface. In her series “If Fonts Were People,” for the shop Love & Robots, Hynes imagines four of the most iconic fonts (Times New Roman, Bodoni MT, Comic Sans and Helvetica) as if they were living breathing people.
She not only drew out their profile pictures, but also gave them mini biographies. Take, for example, Luca Helvetica, the son of Swiss designer Max Miedinger. Luca’s weight fluctuates and he enjoys simplicity over decoration. You can find him everywhere including skulking underground aboard a New York Subway or flying overhead in an international PANAM flight. Read about the rest of the Font family at Love & Robots.
