Alida Sayer

Alida Rosie Sayer graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2009 and by the following year had her first solo exhibition. Layering hundreds of carefully sliced screen prints, Sayer creates three-dimensional typographic forms in this series entitled There is no why using quotes from Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five.

The series of seven three-dimensional typographic illustrations were shown in their entirety at a solo exhibition titled ‘There is no why’ at Marsden Woo Project Space, Marsden Woo Gallery (London) in June – July 2010. Each piece has been made without any digital processes: every sheet printed using traditional techniques, such as letterpress or screen-printing, and cut or constructed completely by hand.

Really incredible stuff. See also her beautifully sculpted atlas. All images copyright Alida Sayer. (via it’s nice that)

A-1 Scrabble Designer Edition

A-1 Scrabble Designer Edition is a student project by Andrew Clifford Capener in which he proposes the ability to order a game board with customized typography. Yes!

The set would come in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.

A game board this sexy could reinvigorate an entire industry. Nice work Andrew. (via lovely package)
