Kilgore

Typeface design

Kilgore is a typeface designed by Carlee Mutschler and inspired by the character Kilgore Trout from Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Breakfast of Champions. The type is meant to be awkward, unsuccessful, and depressive like the life of the man portrayed in the book. This typeface has several inspired characteristics such as high contrast between thin and thick lines, awkward x-height in some characters, and inconsistent weight movement in curves of letterforms. The project showcases the typeface used in patterns and a logo for a designer brand called Kilgore, an “Urban-Designer” collection to showcase the juxtaposition behind
the inspiration.
