Handmade Font Goes Green
The Cactus Font is a product of love and patience: it took six months to grow all cactus limbs, and once they were fully grown, Samuel took photos of every limb and created the handmade font letters. The green typeface is actually a warm glasshouse that may help designers to bring fresh artworks up. Thanks to Samuel’s talent and care, everyone can admire the adorable Cactus Font.
