Sea Ark Sheep Font Trailer from Gestalten on Vimeo.

Sea Ark Sheep is a curiously flexible font whose playful appearance belies its chameleon character. One clue is its name: it's an anagram derived from the word "Shakespeare." As such, the typeface borrows from the bold ornamental, typographic and decorative patterns and prints popular during the mid-16th Century, and its technically unique open-type features are meant to mimic the oral, not the written, art of speaking. This self-generating font possesses unpredictable behavior that yields inventive visual results.
