An amusing font for both children and adults, Word Animals are words that form an animal shape out of the letters in that animal's name. For example, an image of a crocodile is constructed using the letters in the word crocodile.

The colors also play a part in this project, simulating the classic colors associated with each animal, such as a pink flamingo and a white bunny. Words and typography become part of an art piece with a symbolism that is entertaining and playful. A precursory glance at each image shows an animal on a contrasting background, while a closer look reveals the shapes of letters that form a word.

Almost anyone can enjoy the puzzle-like animal shape constructions of the Word Animals font.
