Alphabattle and AAKKOSET
Inspired by the unique designs that the LetterCult’s “Alphabattles” contest is generating, I decided to make my initials using Doug Fuller’s representation of the letter “I” and “E.”
The LetterCult website features impressively original letter design from type designers, letterers, sign painters, graffiti artists, stone carvers, calligraphers, poster artists, and graphic designers. As the sites says, these are “Just people. Who make letters.” That is a humble statement considering the plethora of diverse creative talent found in the LetterCult’s Alphabattles series. Alphabattles contest hasn’t ended yet; check out the latest letter in the series, “R.”
While on the topic of letters of the alphabet, I came across an alphabet inspired designer bookshelf for children. Starting at roughly $20,000 the “AAKKOSET” bookshelf designed by Lincoln Kayiwa is ready to ship from the KAYIWA studio in Finland.
