Feeeels Fuzzy, the typeface, is the result of a low-budget commission for the first issue—the “fuzzy” issue—of a magazine called Feeeels. I began the design process by defining its overarching theme; included were interpretations of fuzziness as a state of mind, a type of logic, and a way of rendering or resolution. I thought the idea of “low resolution” had a lot of potential in terms of form-making so I focused in that area. I did some sketching—both on paper and screen—using various pixelation and halftone techniques until I found something interesting that I was happy with.

The typeface follows two core design decisions. The first involves mixing letterforms of standard contrast—thicker vertical than horizontal strokes—with those of reverse contrast—thinner vertical than horizontal strokes. This juxtaposition yields a very unusual typographic rhythm. The second involves widening letterforms asymmetrically and randomly—perhaps with a “fuzzy” logic. The effect is glitchy and organic.
