Fascinanting Handmade Typography Project

Over the course of a few weeks in January and February,Senongo Akpem created a hand-made typeface using the new Mixel, the new collage app for iPad(http://mixel.cc). The app lets you re-use and even re-crop any piece from any other users collage, which gave him literally hundreds of images to work from that he could alter in any way he chose. 

He tried to use as many images as possible to make the letters free-flowing. Some are a bit more complex than others but he tried to get them all to look like cohesive letterforms.
