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)

I’m thrilled to share the work of graphic designer Martin Pyper with you. Martin runs a small, award-winning design studio in Amsterdam called mestudio where design, craft, and time-consuming repetition converge to create incredible typographic layouts. I couldn’t imagine how much time these projects consume so I shot a quick email to Martin. As it turns out some work like the “Frontiers of Reality” stop motion clip can take up to a week to complete (though he had to repeat it at a larger scale), while he was able to do the “Boring” type using hundreds of steel pins in just two days.

The fact that it is all so time consuming is precisely the point; it is a perfect antidote to the crazy deadlines and usual design work I do sitting behind the Mac, this stuff slows me down, makes me think about materials, the structure, feeling and way type works in the real physical world, back to the roots of typography before the digital age, but also combined with the digital age.

Pyper’s work isn’t limited to kite string and steel pins though. He has also chosen as a medium sugar cubes, playing cards, and laser-cut paper. Thanks for sharing Martin!

Iwona Przybyla created this DIY embroidery calendar concept that would come packaged with the materials needed to stitch the typography for each month. I think regardless of your skill level with needle and thread you would feel pretty accomplished finishing the year. Really beautiful. (via typography served)

Oslo resident and designer Veronica Falsen Hiis settled down in a cozy snow drift to sculpt this great collection of icy type. The clarity of the letterforms is truly impressive despite the frozen medium. See also her type made from the edges of books. (via fastco)

A great typography experiment by Thom Isom as part of his last university project at De Montfort University, Leicester.

Curve-stitch typography created for my final major university project entitled Ludd in April 2010. A range of installations and experiments based around the materials and techniques of arts and crafts. The typeface has been created in both digital and crafted formats with each letter nailed and threaded through 26 separate A4 boards.

Graphic design by Belinda De Bruyn.

We had to make a Typo-poster for the ABC-House (Art Basics for Children) that would both speak to the children and their parents. The type is completely made out of boxes. It says: “Teaching is the art of assisting discovery”
