The Hyper Scrypt typeface was designed for the Hyper Chapelle exhibition. It was commissioned by AAAAA Atelier to Studio Triple's designer Jérémy Landes.

Hyper Scrypt is a modern stencil typeface inspired by the stained glass technique used in the Metz cathedral. It borrows the stained glass method, drawing holes for the light with black lead. This creates a reverse typeface, where the shapes of the letters are drawn by their counters. Hyper Scrypt is at the intersection between 3 metals : the sacred lead of stained glass, the lead of print characters and the heavy metal. Despite its organic look inherited for the molted metal, Hyper Scrypt is based upon a rigorous grid, allowing some neat alignements between shapes in multi lines layouts.

As a second meaning, the fact that nearby phase front distortions of an optical wave are more severe than remote distortions of the same amplitude is called shower-curtain effect.
