Smiling Typefaces by freakyframes Smiling Typefaces by freakyframes
We all are pretty conversant with the typical smile emoticons we use on web, but from years and years we are watching them only in the restricted web fonts like Verdana, Georgia and so on.

So i just did a small experiment to find out how other type “faces” smile, and some of them are really interesting !!

Full view requested, and you can download the print-ready A3 poster here. [link]

Good concept well executed, I particularly like the missing bracket in the last typeface giving the emoticon a more depressed, sleepy appearance.

Thanks ! And yes, exactly ! The missing Glyph adds more to it. I also tried different expressions like : ( and : O and there were lot of other interesting faces too. !
