Animated Tentacle Typography is a Squirming Lovecraftian Nightmare


Feelers is a typographic experiment based on the movement of animal appendages. Despite the bright colours and clever design, the animated letters squirm and move in a very Lovecraftian manner.

Created by American designer and artist Ari Weinkle, the Feelers alphabet is based on wriggling, disembodied animal limbs and intestines. The artist explains: “In my work, I look to break apart and re-appropriate different forms such as the human figure, geometric and organic shapes, and typography. Through the process of fragmenting different entities, I am continually searching for new and unique juxtapositions between shapes, colors, and patterns.”
