interaction typography

by processing

“Waterdrop” is a typeface generated by processing, which decreases legibility to hide information. The intention is to encourage people to share their lives without worrying about privacy and with a sense of security.

People can type in really private messages and use this font to distort their messages and decide how obscure these messages are themselves. They can even transform those secret messages into wallpapers that no one else can read.
