Incorporating the nostalgic gachapon capsule dispenser into their project, four art students created 3-dimensional typographic hiragana. The miniature font-figures feature the first character of hiragana あ (pronounced ah) and was created in two fonts: Mincho and Gothic.

The font figures are adorable alone, but we love how they are presented inside a gachapon dispenser and fit inside a capsule. The characters themselves were cut using a laser cutter.

The four students (find them on twitter here, here, here and here) were all part of a typography course at Musashino Art University and created the font figures as part of a year-end project.
