When a design student uploads a project to a portfolio website, they’re typically hoping for feedback or maybe the odd freelance job. In the case of Martzi Hegedűs, a simple typographic experiment uploaded to Behance turned into a published typeface called Frustro.
Hegedűs was studying at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in Budapest when he started playing around with letterforms based on the Penrose triangle, an Escher-esqe “impossible object” that can’t be fabricated by any earthly means, but makes for a stunning TrueType font.
“At first I had no intention to make it as a font, but it became quite popular over the internet, so I decided to take up the challenge and do it,” says Hegedűs.
