The difficulty of understanding puppet characters by using conventional media is an obstacle in understanding puppet stories. The lack of promotional media or design media in displaying puppet characters is also one of the problems. The millennial generation has no interest in culture, especially puppetry. This situation makes puppet characters increasingly forgotten. The puppet characters are build by a typographic experimental method as a sculpture. The puppet sculptures are expected to become a new medium that is easily remembered and understood by the audience especially millennials generation. Typography experiment method starts from the process of idealizing ideas, representing ideas with several alternative sketch designs, coloring the chosen alternative sketch, and the process of building the images of characters through a composition of letters. The sculpture of puppet character design has the purpose of adding visual references and new media in the learning process of puppet figures in the era of disruption.
