A modular construction set that explores and demonstrates the construction of letter forms. In theory the main characteristics of a typeface come from between 5-10 letters, taking those letters and using them as a template you should be able to draw the rest of your typeface. This project was a way of demonstrating that theory in a physical sense in the form of a construction set, aimed at kids and type nerds alike. The set consists of 20 perspex pieces, from those 20 pieces it is possible to construct every letter (A-Z) uppercase and lowercase, numerals and punctuation on pegboard sheets.
All the pieces were made on the laser cutter at university, then housed inside a toolbox to replicate the look and feel of a construction set. Allowing children the freedom to construct letters with the restriction of the dotted grid.
