Letters of The Alphabet is a 3D typeface design.
It was fully handmade from beginning to end. It was started from sketches to decide how it should look if you were making into actual typeface in squares. It used wood sticks to make the structure. Cutting, gluing, plastering, and painting were done throughout the process. The typeface end up with a video showing all letters and how people use them.
Letters of The Alphabet were chosen to attend the ALLCAPS typography show held by AIGA Iowa together with the other two typeface works: "Never Say Die" and "Lending Out Books_Hal Sirowitz," which earn the reward of "Best of Show."
