Pawpack is the second version of the PalPack picture font. However, this version is predominantly focused on animals. All the fonts are silhouettes of the left sides of the animals. The most challenging aspect of Pawpack was to make each character appear to be a different animal that viewers can easily recognize. In addition to the animal characters, other characters related to animals were included so that users can create more intriguing compositions using only this picture font.
Picture fonts have the ability to convey messages and meanings. Most of the time, each symbol provokes a single meaning. However, the purpose here was to create fonts that would individually provoke several feelings or meanings.These feelings or meanings come from the viewers’ differing ideologies. Each character can generate a wide range of emotions including humor, sarcasm, optimism, and so forth. In addition, Symbloc was created to require no explanation for its use.
