Hilarious! Oldenburg defontstructionism in action.
Comment by intaglio 16th August 2009
Yes, it is awesome. Some of the letters remind me Salvador Dalí's work, e.g those melted clocks. I wonder, do we use the same tool set?
Comment by Frodo7 16th August 2009
Haha. Great adaptation. They really do look melted. Way to make it yours. Love it.

:-)

I stand no chance of keeping up with the standard of the amazing geometric 'structions that some of you designer types come up with, so I just play around with interesting shapes.

Actually, Mrs pnut suggested a melted font some time ago and I thought this would be a good chance to experiment. Next, an original, fully melted effort perhaps.
Comment by p2pnut 16th August 2009
This is cool, but by taking a look at the sample text I thought that maybe it would be even cooler if you would rework b and l. The b looks like a strange v and l seems to be a r/f-hybrid. Everything else seems to fit..just a suggestion ;-)
Comment by Magic Sam 16th August 2009
Yeah it's a great font but you should look into the "b" it looks a little too melted
Comment by Electricgator 16th August 2009
Wow, that's great. :) I like it.
Comment by starburst 16th August 2009
LOL!
My regards to the muse that inspired this version.
It seems like Thal started a new trend, but you put your clone too close to the oven.

Cool. I love the p! fantastic job.

Instant FunStruct classic. :-)

Thanks to Thalamic for starting this remix series. It's amazing to see all different solutions born from Clone it. Make it better.

I think there is a little spacing problem with the l (too much space on the right).

One idea: you could use the uppercase to create variations of the lowercase letters, with shapes melted differently. Combining this variations would allow a more organic melted text image. :-)
Comment by gferreira_admin 17th August 2009
@GFerreira: Yep, I like that idea!
Comment by Magic Sam 17th August 2009
Worked on the b and l ... and altered the spacing on the l - cheers all for your input :)

This one started out as a laugh - but, from the response, it looks like I had better finish the job. I only hope I can do the UC up to thal's standard (before I start on it with the blowtorch)
Comment by p2pnut 17th August 2009
It's your font now, pnut. Your font, your standards. After seeing Entrees, your standards are better than mine. :-)

But, I think what gf was saying was that you should do lowercase again in the uppercase slots, only melted differently than the lowercase. This way, if someone was to type out text in this font, they can choose between two variants of each character, randomly using one or the other, giving the text a more, uh, realistic, melted feel. Am I right, gf?

Aha! the penny has dropped ... all is revealed etc. Thanks for pointing that out thal. OK, alternative lc it is :-)
Comment by p2pnut 17th August 2009
Yes, Thalamic, that's what I meant. Just a humble suggestion. Thanks for explaining it better than I did. :-)
Comment by gferreira_admin 17th August 2009
Your explanation was fine Gustavo ... it was my reading that was wonky.

Have got the alternative lc ready to melt - I ended up virtually redoing thal's original. I like to see what I am deconstructing :-)
Comment by p2pnut 17th August 2009
lol, great stuff!
Comment by jmarquez 18th August 2009
Alternative lowercase now fully melted and available (on the u/c keys) ... enjoy :-)
