A Mind-Bending Font Inspired by a Famous Optical Illusion
Frustro - Thnk it might work on the web?

 1:48 pm on Feb 12, 2014 (gmt 0)

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.

This font is truly mind-boggling!

:: detour to look up decimal #369 ::

Oh, double acute. In the linked article it just looks like an umlaut, which made no sense.

What fun! One more on the long list of "Why didn't anyone else think of that?" :)
