L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N

Keep your mind set, keep your head home, keep your heart strong, keep your head up.

At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it.

This font will make your brain hurt Impossible, twisting geometric artwork abounds throughout the internet (see the Verge’s logo for one prominent example). So it seems high time that someone made a similarly reality-defying font. “Oxymora” is it, transforming the familiar forms of English letters into bizarre, spatially confused 3D blocks that make your brain hurt. It was created by Barcelona-based illustrator and designer Birgit Palma, who says he was inspired by the work of brain-teasing artist MC Escher.
