This incredibly disturbing typeface comes from JC Debroize from French graphic design studio Kerozen.

Every year, Kerozen Studio prints calenders for their clients; this year, they've decided to completely outdo themselves with their human flesh letters calendar. Each of the seven employees were transformed into human characters of the alphabet, that make up the word Kerozen. JC Debroize and the Kerozen team had a great time making this horrifying human typeface, where each letter has a bulging eyeball, hair, pores and wrinkles. Debroize photographed her co-workers faces and then mapped the skin texture of the their face onto the clay letters she had photographed earlier.

I can only imaging their clients reactions at receiving these incredibly grotesque human alphabets. Personally, I think I'll stick with Wingdings typeface. Stats for Human-Inspired Alphabet Designs Trending: Older & Buzzing
