OC Pickllle

A variable font inspired by the cut and paste techniques of the illustrators Eric Carle and Lois Ehlert. Pickllle seamlessly transitions from an elegant sans serif to a more playful hand rendered design.

Pickllle preserves the best bits of Format Collage and introduces contextual cycling which identifies repeated characters and automatically replaces them with alternate forms to give a humanly imperfect appearance to text. It’s kind of a big dill 😀

Specimen Sheet

Once upon a whimsical day, a curious caterpillar wiggled its way through the emerald foliage, pondering life's riddles. Unbeknownst to it, a sly fox with a mischievous glint in its eye watched from behind a nearby bush, plotting an unconventional partnership. "Aha!" exclaimed the fox, "What a delightful trio we'd make: I, the cunning and clever, you, the master of metamorphosis, and of course, the trusty pickllle, ready to add some zesty excitement to our escapades!" And so, an unlikely friendship between a caterpillar, a fox, and a pickllle began, embarking on the most extraordinary adventures full of twists and tangy turns.
