The KEROZEN Human Type takes on a freaky fleshy aesthetic that could easily be chalked up to a bad magic spell gone wrong in such fantasy worlds as tat depicted in 'Harry Potter.' This is especially the case since each of the seven letters making up this specific alphabet is modelled after the seven members of the design team. From their skin tone to their eyes and everything in between, the KEROZEN Human Type is disturbingly realistic, save for the fact that they are impossible.

Designed by JC Debroize, the KEROZEN Human Type is made for calendars the studio prints for its clients annually. Debroize reveals, "I first made the letters in old-school 3-D with modeling clay. We shot pictures of the letters and of the design team's faces. Then I made a mapping of skin textures on the letters with Photoshop and added the hair and the eyes."
