Typeface Design

MINCE(Thin in France word) + WHIMSICAL = WIMCE

The unique anatomy of WIMCE is horizontal organic cut out shaped rectangle stacks each other to form a typeface. WIMCE was inspired by my favorite dessert crepe cake. The key characteristic comes from how crepe cake is stacked with each other. Therefore, it has a similar characteristic of thin long shaped rectangles layering each other to form a typeface.

It is combined with two typefaces Meta & Acta. It is based on the Meta characteristic of a readable typeface from an angle. For the contrast of thick and thin strokes it’s based on a characteristic of Acta font face being very decorative.
