Splinter: 3D Typeface

Arslan Shahid is a Canadian designer who created this really intense typeface he calls Splinter, which is “created with the notion of war, taken from the perspective of the mood and atmosphere it creates in areas of conflict.” I thought these letters were really rad but terrifying at the same time, there’s so much going on in each form.

I’m not sure what the scale of these are but I’m imagining how cool they would be if they were huge sculptures. Imagine seeing a room full of these spelling out different words or even phrases.
