Designer Matthew Olin used typographic design to recreate superhereos.

Look closely at his images and you’ll see they are a compilation of letters and symbols from a particular typographic family. In the Spiderman illustration, a bracket shapes his collar bone. For Batman, Sans Serif commas become his eyes, upside down r’s become his nose, and a greater than sign is his chin dimple.

We thought Olin’s work is noteworthy for the way he is conveying the impact of typography in a way that non-design enthusiasts can understand. Check out the gallery below for more superheroes.
