These literally demonstrate the fact that letters, words, and type itself can exist on several planes or realms. Positioning it in this context evokes a sense of intimacy appropriate for it’s intended application. I’d love to receive this in the mail.

This self-promotional project is the culmination of months worth of refinement, experimentation and trying to showcase the innate beauty of type. I wanted to achieve several things through this work: to be both visually engaging and educational; to appeal to those within creative fields yet still be approachable to anyone who appreciates design; and to experiment with the creation of letterforms using physical objects and natural lighting.
