May 13 Special: What Are You Afraid Of? – A Typographic Set

Categories Articles

Senongo Akpem is a Nigerian American designer and art director.  He currently works in NYC, and loves printmaking and sci-fi. You can find him on twitter(@senongo), or check out the art directed articles on his site.

This typographic set is an illustration of all those things I am afraid of- bugs, snakes, malaria, you name it.  Mostly, I let the shape of the letter determine what the subject would be, rather than the other way around.  Although this started out simply as an experiment, I am very happy with how it all came together. They are all available on my site as desktop, mobile, and tablet wallpapers.
