Background

Calling your font Pipo might cause some people to think there’s a certain lack of seriousness on your part. After all, the name does call to mind a clown. Nothing could be further from the truth, though, and Benout Bodhuin’s first design for Gestalten Fonts might be playful, but the only thing it shares with a circus is the activity of traveling. Pipo – with its hand-drawn style and sinuous, tubular drawing – is all about departure and arrival. These characters are defined by the route they have undertaken during design, and Pipo can be used (should be used, according to its designer!) for a variety of things – expected and unexpected – resulting, once again, in a new destination.
