Perles, Typeface, 2010

Perles ignores all important typographic acutenesses in order to represent a consistently geometrical typeface. Nevertheless it communicates a lot of fun and is suitable in particular for providing trademarks. To promote the typeface six artists was so kind, to design some postcards for us. Thanks to Mario Lombardo, Gianna Pfeiffer, Anna Clea Skoluda, Alessio Leonardi, Kristina Brasseler and Lars Harmsen. Buy the font HERE.

The animation from Emilia Forstreuter (top left) creates the three words “Fliesstext eher nicht” which can be translated with “running text rather not”. Its an excerpt of a critics quote and gives a little playful hint to the bad reviews this font has received. You can see the movie HERE.
