Mycela Display 

Glyphs are nice individuals upon themselves and are always in relation with other characters. In this experiment I want to take this a step further by creating an endless amount of ligatures when typing. In Mycela, the notion of beautiful doesn’t lie on a single character as an individual, but more on a combination of characters that make it beautiful together. Mycela gets her name from Mycelium which is the vegetative part of a fungus or fungus-like bacterial colony, consisting of branching thread-like hyphae. It can either appear so tiny that it can’t be seen or grow thousands of acres big. Similar to this fungus, in this typeface you can make words grow in an infinite amount of characters and still have it connected.

150 glyphs
Lowercase, Uppercase, Numbers, Symbols (mathematics, arrows, currency), Punctuation, 12 Ligatures, 9 Alternates
