Readers Pop Your Retinas

I love this experimental type by Mexican graphic designer Manolo Guerrero (via).


Optica Normal is not very normal,” say your tricked eyes. Rightly so.

Manolo G build this type with orthogonal lines. It’s designed for 100+ pt size – check the PDF sample.


Inspiration came from the abstract geometry of Colombian op artist Omar Rayo. There’s a nice website for the Museo Rayo and you can take a virtual tour of it here.


How can it feel so good to hurt your eyes this bad? My retinas must have a mind of their own.
