Two more fonts that kick comic sans’ ass

If you are a regular at pixelonomics, you might have already read about the disgusting but innovative hair leg font by Mayuko Kanazawa.

If you thought that was awesome, wait till you read and see what Shurong Diao and Michael Allen have done with hair-locks and beards.

Shurong, an undergraduate graphic design student at the School of Visual Arts in New York, has used Rapunzel-rivaling locks to create a font which look like they have been created by brush strokes. By creating this typography with the long black hair of Chinese women (thier distict feature), Shurong wanted to build a connection between Chinese characters and Roman letters.

New York-based designer Michael Allen, has taken the communicating powers of beard styles to the next level with this font Alphabeard Beardface. Created over a period of two years, many beards were sacrificed to create every letter of the alphabet, plus a period and a comma.
