Slinkytype: A Playful Typeface by Paul Hollingworth

Flexing his typography design skills, Paul Hollingworth created the Slinkytype as a type experiment using repetitive linear shapes to generate letter form. Paul, a UK-based multidisciplinary designer, gleaned inspiration for the project from—you guessed it—everyones favorite spring. The rounded forms are playful and appear to embrace movement and flex, much like their namesake.

Slinkytype is not for sale, though the poster above was used for Spicers Paper 'Respect the Spec' campaign to promote a specialty paper Monza Recycled.
