paperclip

“Paperclip” is a multi-dimensional display typeface. Consisting exclusively of upper-case characters, it was modeled (unsurprisingly) after the shape of a traditional paperclip. Each character has been multiplied and offset alongside its companion, while disappearing before the point of intersection between layers, allowing for a 3D effect in a 2D design. The random selection of which layers stays intact allows “Paperclip” to create a sense of uncertainty over which one is in the foreground.

Four characters sharing the same shape highlighted above, do not have any form of consistency between which “layer” overlaps the other. This was an intentional choice, allowing for a less structured feel to the set of type, and an individuality to each letter.
