Unreal SunnyNight Font by Paris Koutsikos is available for purchase at Handmadefont shop
Surrealism Typography Roots
This surrealistic typeface was created by Paris Koutsikos, a gifted graphic artist from Athens, Greece, specializing in editorial design, murals and silk-screen printing. There are letters that cannot be forgotten and there are letters that make you unforgettable. Born somewhere between dream world and reality, unreal SunnyNight font will take you beyond the borders of impossible right to the realm of boundless imagination. Surrealistic in its design concept and exceptional in its shape, the original alphabet cannot be compared to anything – it just captures your soul at first sight, once and for all, with its magical beauty and unique idea and doesn’t let you go.
Paris worked on SunnyNight Font through the lens of two principles: the practice of the medium and the search of the random. Every alphabetic element from the font does not necessarily the one next to it, nor does it in fact make sense on its own, however the final image can be an independent creation or as a part of a bigger illustration.
Handmade Font Usage
The key-note of the font can be found in the name itself: SunnyNight, the combination of the incompatible, the alliance of a day and a night, the sun and the moon, the harmony of illusions and the real world.
Use un unreal SunnyNight Font as an inerasable lettering message for everyone, evoke a response from the audience and heat the imagination. It has quite a large range of application. You can take the font as a typeface option for a digital art picture. The usage of the SunnyNight for an inscription on a commercial will also be an interesting choice. And, of course, you will certainly hit the mark if you use the alphabet for a new fantasy book cover or a movie poster.

Art Curator Explains Why This Font Is So Unreal
Evita Tsokanta, an art curator and a friend of Paris Koutsikos had written the following text about SunnyNight Font.
‘The drawings depict various existing or imaginary objects positioned in random order to formulate compositions, the forms of which simulate the letters of the alphabet. Each element does not necessarily match or converse with the one next to it, nor does it in fact make sense on its own, however the final image can stand independently or as part of something larger.
The forms themselves are utilised in the same logic as words are, when combined to compose statements. Surrealist in its’ methodology, fantasy art in form and comical in content, SunnyNight is a pastiche of references that ultimately create a contemporary version of Drop Cap.
The project is based on two principles: the practice of the medium (pencil and eraser) and the search of the random.
There are no drafts or sketches in preparation. The drawings spontaneously evolve based on a very abstract notion of the form of each letter. The objects that comprise each letter have no conceptual relation neither to each other but nor to the letter in which they exist. The process itself is a free association exercise that stretches the imagination.
A cat-like animal lays next to a composition that looks like something but is actually nothing in particular, tentacles stick out of an object that has occurred from the composition of various volumes decorated with random patterns and so on and so forth’.
