Bigfoot was created by Patrick Griffin and published by Canada Type. Bigfoot contains 1 design. p > Bigfoot is the fattest typeface ever made.

It began as an easy exercise given to trainees in a design course: The majority of people don't appreciate type since they do not truly understand what it actually is. One way to comprehend it is looking at it like a mix of sculptures that have to work together to accomplish a certain harmony, where each letter form is one of those sculptures. Most individuals understand and value that a sculpture starts from a rock of an incomprehensible type, which is manipulated by somebody into ending up being the recognizable or abstract work of art it eventually is. Consider type style a sort of two-dimensional sculpting. You have a rectangle. Take away as a little as possible from it till it is identifiable as the letter A. Repeat to get the letter B, and so on. After all 26 very little letters are made, do they actually operate as an alphabet to develop words and sentences that are recognizable to the human eye?

This exercise can activate ideas and theories about the total subjective nature of recognizing abstract yet rather familiar shapes. It can go into the mind of art in general. However something for specific, this workout has up until now helped a few individuals find a new gratitude for finely crafted typefaces. If you are a style teacher, your students' typographical point of view and arguments would take advantage of it. And if you are a designer, well, fat faces are all the rage nowadays, and this is as fat as it can get.

Please note that this typeface, due to its minimalistic nature, does not consist of accented characters. It does nevertheless support the full C0 Controls and Basic Latin Unicode set.

All follows this typeface go to support the Type Club of Toronto.
