Monster’s Inc. Typeface


Monster’s Incorporated is a 2001 American computer-animated comedy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The film centers on two monsters employed at the titular Monsters, Inc.: top scarer James P. “Sulley” Sullivan and his one-eyed partner and best friend Mike Wazowski.


While at the Art Institute of California, as a typography project, the assignment was to create our very own typeface with the liberty of using anything (object, place, or thing) as our inspiration.


With the popularity of both films Monster’s Inc. and it’s prequel Monster’s University at the time, the inspiration didn’t fall short. Creating a collection of characters from the films for the inspiration, I began to strategically match up the characters to my letters. Administering Adobe Illustrator to refine each character’s characteristics.
