This idea came about as an accident, as many good ideas do. I found out yesterday that my copy of PIXAR Typestry still worked. So I tried extruding several glyphs from the FBI font Town Ornaments.
And they look like useful chunks of design, so I thought I'd share them and invite you all to use them in a composition.
They don't have to be the hero of a design—you could make a page border from these PNG imports in the attached Xara file.
I think they're just fun, and "FUN" is in short supply and big demand these days, trust in it!
P.S. Typestry was the only Windows software PIXAR ever made before going public. It's considered Abandonedware, and I just saw a copy of Typestry 2 for the Macintosh on amazon for $1,500.
Is it worth it? IMO, not at all. It's from 1994, there's many 3D programs that can outperform this little gem, but there's just a piece of PIXAR magic in the rendering engine you can come close to, but not exactly duplicate and I've tried.
