Chrisb Marquez and In-House shared a beautiful typography project titled Troptical, a hypnotic, energetic multilinear typeface that’s all rhythm and movement. Featuring concentric lines and angular construction, Troptical is inspired by the dazzling dynamism of op-art and the clever geometry of Latin American design, with a dash of 8-bit video game playfulness.
