There isn’t much to say about what this piece communicates, because it doesn’t communicate words. Instead, it evokes a feeling of appreciation for communication itself. Isn’t it nice to have an alphabet? Isn’t it awesome we don’t have to create our own from scratch? Isn’t it fun to have 26 letters to draw and assemble and rearrange and build with and color in? Here’s hoping the designer’s nieces and nephews took that from the piece too!

This project was inspired by my nieces and nephews. I started out by drawing each of the letters to form a collage. I then scanned each of the letters and vectorized them, adding textures and tweaking shapes. Team Printshop did a great job bringing it to life!
