Frustro Typeface by Martzi Hegedus in main art  Category

I don’t know about you but we here at Design Milk are suckers for good fonts and this one is no exception. Hungarian designer Martzi Hegedus created the Frustro typeface that was inspired by the Penrose triangle. The Penrose triangle is what’s called an impossible object, or described by the mathematician that it’s named for as “impossibility in its purest form.” M.C. Escher used it a bunch in his work.

You can see from the “R” example (above) how combining the two top layouts formed the bottom “R” which has characteristics of the Penrose triangle.
