French designer Antoine Derriey infused plastic cups into his typography and came up with a typeface that is perfectly appropriate for summertime.
The Paris-based creative used 350 cups to arrange the word "Chilly." He chose that particular word to represent a cool, refreshing summer vacation. To also signify beating the heat, he filled the cups with green mint syrup; the mint is seen as a refreshing flavor, while the coloring in the cups represents water.
The typeface he came up with using the plastic cups is like a mixture of the Gothic and Goudy text fonts, except they have a more smooth and rounded structure and a bubbly texture. He first physically created the typeface and then mimicked it digitally. The digital version unfortunately does not relay the messages of summer as effectively as the physical version.
