ABOUT







Jakk Breedon

As a student based in Nottingham, UK, Jack Breedon writes about his optical illusion font Mangata (2015): The Mangata Typeface was inspired by Surreal and Abstract French film director Germaine Dulac and her use of camera angles and on set props that created these really fascinating optical illusions, with each letter being a different optical illusion ranging from Rubins Vase, Cafe Wall, Bourdon Illusion and The Necker Cube all the way to The Impossible Cube, Penrose Triangle, Mach Bands and The Jastrow Illusion.

In 2017, now located in Plymouth, UK, he designed the all caps op-art display typeface Dulac. Dulac is a font inspired by the French director Germaine Dulac. She was most renowned for her use of optical illusions within her work. Behance link.
