Hollow Typography demonstrates playful typography of different corner setting. In Illustrator, there are three other options for adjusting the corners: inverted round, chamfer, and round. With a circle cutting out the center of each character, it makes the font charming and unique. Along with the shape, the chromatic gradient and the 3D effect applied to each of the figures enhance more distinctive characteristics. As to the colors, I applied RGB as the three main colors to the 3D perspective shapes to make the fonts more recognizable.
