Michael Jordan Typeface

This is amazing!

A gifted 19-year-old who works under the pseudonym PhreshSoldier — draws design inspiration from the relentless pursuit of excellence that became Jordan's trademark during his career with the Chicago Bulls. The typeface illustration, which Smith says took more than four days to design and complete, features more than 20,000 text entries of MJ's numerous accomplishments, signature moments and quotes meticulously arranged into a sharp, evocative depiction of the Hall of Famer shooting a dagger stare at some opponent (or, possibly, teammate) just outside the frame.

The beauty of a piece like this isn't just the artist's talent for reproducing MJ's likeness; it's what the myriad details compiled and presented can tell us about Jordan and the way Smith (and, by proxy, legions of other fans) view him. Your eyes are drawn quickly to the "MVP" and "Air Jordan" entries that appear above Jordan's right eye, to the bending "Dominance" that traces his taut jawline, to the "Never Give Up" that arcs across his left shoulder.
