Paul Hollingworth / Slinkytype
I remember getting Slinkys around the holidays and thinking “Awesome! I can’t wait to work the stairs with this!” Then, within an hour (without fail) the poor Slinky would be stepped on, kinked, and forever ruined. And the cycle would repeat a year later.
This sans-kink typeface, Slinkytype, from Paul Hollingworth brings me back to those exciting stairs-filled days. I love how the playfulness mixes with precise geometric details — the perfect combination of typography and nostalgia. And that white type on black is super snappy.
I would love to use this font sometime; any word if it’s available to buy? Couldn’t find any info from Paul’s site.
Thanks to Jason Wong for sending this link our way!
