The Impossible Font


I’m certain that most of you illusion purists are already very familiar with the Penrose triangle illusion as it has already been featured extensively on the site. That being said, this great impossible font titled “Frustro” by its creator Martzi Hegedűs brings an entirely new angle (pardon the phun) to this classic illusion.

While Hegedűs has not yet added a download option so you can actually use the font yourself, he does show how it was created and the page also shows every letter and symbol in the font so someone else could, hypothetically, turn it into a useable font.

He even added an example of the font in action in what I think would be a great poster for Moillusions, complete with the impossible triangle that inspired the project.

What do you guys think, if you could download this font, would you actually use it? Personally, I think it’s just impossible enough that even Escher would love to type with it, were he still around.

    yes that’s right impossible to create

  • Tish

    That is definitely cool. Still very easy to read and only closer inspection does your brain start realizing that something isn’t quite right.

    • :-D

      how was i supposed to know that something wasn’t right!!!
      Think about it and you’ll realise that is a snippet from a song!!

  • Walter

    I think this would make a great font!

  • Gene Sanders

    I’d use that font regularly.

  • Slammer

    That’s awesome! If he ever does put together a download for it, please post it on your site so we’ll know!

  • Mindirella

    I like it! Can I download it? :)

  • Craig Schaff

    Absolutely!! That would be great to do an annual report in. PLEASE someone do it! I don’t have the foggiest idea on how to or I would try

  • Art

    Awesome font.ö

  • Stevin


  • merrick

    That’s neat. But it’s my understanding that if you use it and whoever is reading it doesn’t have it on their computer, it will be rendered in whatever font is the closest to it. What we’re seeing here is not actually the font itself, but images (jpg).
    Correct me if I’m wrong.

  • Dave
