How did they achieve this affect? I see that they choose different variations in type weight to make some regions darker, but they could not have distributed this by hand. That would have taken literally forever.

(image is a gif btw)

Any ideas /gd/?

Probably made with this illustrator plugin
http://astutegraphics.com/software/phantasm/
it has a raster effect where you can choose to use text characters instead of dots
(i made an example real quick here)
its like 80 bucks tho, i havent seen a free version anywhere

Thanks for the reply. I definitely can't afford an $80 plugin (wasn't Illustrator like $300-400 before Adobe went the subscription route? Seems a bit much for a plugin), but maybe phantasm is included in their trial? I'll go digging around for a free alternative I guess.

If anybody else has any ideas, post them. I'll keep up with the thread.

Looks like a regular text with a number grid clipping mask.

I think that would be it. You can duplicate the text layer to make some letters darker than others and then mask those others out.
