Al Kimiya Typeface

Designers Benjamin Varin and Pierre Ferrandez have created this sans-serif typeface called Al Kimiya, based on alchemical symbols. This is a great example of adaptation and the use of reference material to create something wholely different. In the end product, besides the set up glyphs that are infact alchemical symbols, the typeface only hints at the symbols it is derived from.
