Stockholm-based designer Kyuhyung Cho‘s ‘abc pictograph fonts’ is a collection of four image-based typefaces – Creatures Regular, Creatures Italic, Garden Regular and Geometry Regular – modeled on languages attributed to ancient cave-dwelling civilizations and modern character based dialects.  Cho invents an alphabet where images represent letters so the sentiment of the text is delivered in an expressive visual language that is meant to suggest its meaning.
