FOREAL made use of Cinema 4D to CGI-sculpt each of the 26 figures. Inspiration was taken from human body parts, animals, food, nature and everyday objects to assemble an incredibly quirky collection. The Sculpted Alphabet makes every letter obvious, despite its extrusion into the third dimension. Of course, it's the compositional, textural and colorful treatments of the object-referencing typography that makes them it such a whimsical departure from your typical words on a page. Think about the peculiar concepts that could be conveyed with just a pair of these placed side-by-side.
