@fackeldeyfinds on Twitter alerted me to the following video saying: “This one is for you”.

Indeed the video is about Laika Sputnik, but not about me, nor Laika the dog, but about a dynamic font “that can seamlessly use the whole spectrum of its cuts. A font that is able to move between its extremes in real time. An interactive font that is able to respond to its surroundings.”

Apparently Laika has been developed by two Swiss men, Michael Flückiger und Nicolas Kunz, for their bachelor thesis at the Hochschule der Künste Bern.

You can read more on their website http://laikafont.ch/ (see here for English version).

On that website you can also dynamically interact with Laika by moving your mouse (see test-page).

More fun with fonts and letters by Michael Flückiger: “Details Pandoras Box” and Typocraphic Spiderweb. The last is really spectacular.
