“Decoracha started as a design-school project, when I was asked to create a typeface in typography class. I came up with the idea of a quirky font, inspired by Art Deco principles and the antennae of a Madagascan cockroach. In 2017 it became the most successful crowd-funded font in history. In 2019, we launched of a holistically re-branded version of the font, with re-designed letters, new characters and four new stylistic sets, enhancing its quirky, versatile and playful character.”
