Conceived as the first edible weight of the Helvetica typeface, Helvedible was the result of a workshop conducted with undergraduate students at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. Collectively, the class created an entire typeface from cotton candy and, once finished, ate each letterform.
Helvedible is an open source, video-based typeface. The entire project is available as a series of chroma keyed video and After Effects files. If you would like a copy of the raw files, please get in touch.
