Futuracha - the Font



This Font Evolves as You Type, and It’s Just Too Gorgeous

Bored Panda  3/13/17 by​ Stella 

This is Futuracha Pro, a unique set of whimsical, weaving characters that change shape and interact as they form different words, and it’s almost ready for keyboards everywhere.

These letters change shape as they form different words, intuitively interacting to create magical text

Høly, a team of designers based in Greece, launched Futuracha 5 years ago as an experimental font. The quirky letters came in raw form, and had to be arranged manually. Due to explosive popularity, Høly began designing Futuracha Pro, an Open Type version of the file that could be typed normally from any keyboard, featuring intelligent characters that change shape according to the letter sequence of a given word.

Futuracha Pro basically makes any word look like an Art-Deco masterpiece, and it’s slated to be complete in May. Høly’s Indiegogo campaign to crowdfund the font’s development was a smashing success, raising over 15 times their original goal of $4000. Backers, depending on their pledge, will receive a personal or commercial licence to use the font, as well as mesmerizing merch.
