I love finding on-going projects that I discover right when they start—to see the progression and look forward to each day’s post. This happened with the Tooling Around project by Joseph Alessio, who created this awesome A to Z experimental project with tools. Check out the entire alphabet below—cool, right?
Today’s typographic treats are all from The Type Fight.
Happy Snow Day to anyone experiencing yet another winter storm! The federal government is closed today, so I am dedicating my day to some freelance and the blog.
A few weeks ago, I came across the Instagram account of Alex Solis, a designer and illustrator working on a book showcasing the American Sign Language alphabet through a set of signs and adorable illustrations. The project consists of photographing the american sign language alphabet one letter at the time, and integrating a fun character that starts with the same letter. Three days ago, Alex completed the last and final letter for this project, and his kick starter campaign to get the book printed is in full swing! Check out and donate to the campaign here. Below, I pieced the whole alphabet together, so that his entire collection can be showcased in all of its awesomeness. Check it out!
Julien Poisson, decided to create an experimental typographic and illustration project, in which he created a male face to resemble each letter of the alphabet. The faces are stylized to distinctly capture the essence of each letter—from A to Z. Check out the entire alphabet below, and visit the project’s Behance page to get a closeup look at all of the letters (I did my two initials below)!
Pop Chart Lab just started selling this awesome Alphabet of Typography print (18″ x 24″ for $25) in their online store. The poster is an alphabetical primer on the wonders of typography. Check out the print below, and purchase your very own copy here! This will look fantastic in my office—can’t wait to get mine :)
A few years ago, a friend of mine sent me a link to the Retail Alphabet Game (now in its fifth edition), and I got hooked. I immediately sent the game to all of my coworkers and as a group we were able to guess all of the 26 brands. If you need a fun time waster, this is it! Editions 1-4 have answer keys (don’t be tempted to cheat), but the current edition doesn’t, so you might need to turn to some of your friends and coworkers for help. Good luck! If you can’t guess a certain letter, leave a comment…maybe a fellow reader can help you out.
*Helpful Hint: Remember, each letter isn’t necessarily the first letter of the brand name.
