Alligators are rough and grimy. Living mostly in mucky water and swamps, I wanted this type to be a little rough around the edges. The large wedged gap was meant to emulate one of the alligator’s most recognizable features, it’s mouth. However it also relates to how you most times see an alligator, submerged. Knowing alligators are aggressive and have a powerful bite to them I made the letters hefty with some sharp “dangerous” edges. Not to mention just having the rip down it’s middle, the word looks brutal to begin with.
