Hungarian designer Martzi Hegedűs has created a single typeface, titled Frustro, on the sole premise of making it impossible. Based on the illusion of the Penrose triangle (which is by definition, an impossible object whose creator deemed it “impossibility in its purest form”) the type appears to be facing two different directions simultaneously.
Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher continues to be an inspiration for designers today who like to create mind-bending works. One such person is 25-year-old graphic designer Martzi Hegedűs from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts. Hegedűs has created an Escher-inspired typeface called ‘Frustro’, two-dimensional alphabets that also look like 3D projections.
