Handmade, Chromatic Gel Alphabet

Font design is something we’re enamored with, as typefaces can be so expressive and fun. Generally they’re made with pixels on a screen, which  is why this bubbly gel typeface is so unique. Made using gel, placed on a CD, artist Ruslan Khasanov created an alphabet that is drenched in color and reflection. It’s a simple concept, but pulled off really well.  Via Inspiration Grid:

“These images are looks like computer graphics, some kind of experiment with gradients. But the whole point is that this is a photo, there is not a drop of any paint here only the phenomenon of interference. I formed letters with gel on the surface of the CD and illuminated it with a lamp.”
