TypoThursday × Multicolored Typeface Inspired by Mohawk

18/02/2013

A few weeks back, we wrote about Mohawk’s new corporate identity and logo. The US papermaker’s colorful M-shaped logo inspired by paper rolls and printing presses used in the paper- and printmaking process has also caught the eye of Bulgarian designer Ivan Filipov. Inpired by Mohawk’s new logo, Ivan Filipov designed a typeface called Multicolore Vector Font.

Even though Ivan Filipov’s typeface sadly can not be made into a working font, it can be easily used to create short texts and headlines. If you want to use the font for one of your own projects or posters,  you can download it here (with easy instructions). The designer urges you to try and stack a few characters to create some random art. Printed on premium white papers such as Mohawk’s Via Felt of Options, the colorful letters will just look fabulous – have fun with it!

The font is made in EPS (Adobe Illustrator) format, and you can easily adjust the color swatches and change the colors of the color segments, at the end you can find a short video which shows you exactly how to do this. Below you can also see how Ivan Filipov was inspired by Mohawk’s “M”!
