World's First Listenable And Playable Font

Agency: Happy People Project


Imagine Amadeus Mozart asking you to come up with the most creative way to tell his story to the people. What would you do?
We created the world’s first playable and listenable font for Peter Shaffer’s famous play “Amadeus” to the Turkish audience.
We put this font at the heart of our communication campaign to introduce Peter Shaffer’s famous play “Amadeus” to the Turkish audience.
First, we created staff and put the Amadeus line in the middle of the four lines used as a guide to design the font. Then, we placed letters instead of notes.
We designed 14 different numbers and letters of the alphabet that match the notes and octaves on the staff. We created a font family of 574 characters for the alphabet consisting of 32 letters and 9 numbers. Putting the Amadeus font at the center of our campaign, our messages and headlines uniquely merged with Mozart’s music. While people read each word, they were also able to listen to the matched note.
Even the lost letters that Amadeus wrote 250 years ago turned into a unique piece with his notes. A pianist played Amadeus’s letters.

This professional campaign titled 'World's First Listenable And Playable Font' was published in Turkey in March, 2021. It was created for the brand: Amadeus, by ad agency: Happy People Project. This Integrated medium campaign is related to the Recreation, Leisure industry and contains 10 media assets. It was submitted about 3 years ago.
