TNT - experimental typeface

A conceptual typeface that derived from a small idea I had about nowadays news. We live our lives consuming enormous amounts of information and news, which occasionally is not totally correct because it didn’t came form the original source. Stories get changed and twisted all the time and it is quite hard to know of something is really true.

Typography plays a large role in this process, so I wanted to create a typeface that represented these twisted facts in a visual way. The typeface came out pretty clear but the independent characters got little exceptions.

This self-initiated project is ongoing so during my spare time I’ll always change and twist different characters, so I guess it will never be completely finished.
