The manatee is like a large aquatic potato or pickle. They’re not aggressive at all and are very slow moving. They are very plump animals that are extremely vulnerable. For the type I decided to clump the letters in a loaf. I wanted the letters to have as little movement as possible, just some large lazy, blob-like letters that you could envision being very buoyant. The only exception to these lazy rules I set on myself was the M. I decided to give it an appendage that could unify the loaf like structure and also provide some localized movement.
