Peignot Zebra

When I was at SVA, I created a zebra made out of Peignot typeface for junior year typography class.

Firstly I picked several typefaces to experiment. I was trying to find a typeface that has interesting aspects when it comes to live in real life. Among those I searched, peignot got my eye. It has a rounded corner with very unique shape and edge. It’s very elegant however it is not an easy typeface to use in daily lives because of its uniqueness. In order to create an installation art piece, I showed the typeface to 300 random people and asked them what animals you can imagine out of this typeface. More than 60% people replied an zebra. So I decided to create zebra with the typeface.
