Joel at Blue Ant Studio has designed a wonderful alphabet for kids using iconic mid century modern furniture. The design was originally limited to wooden building blocks, but now theres plans for a poster as well. Why didn’t I have something like this when I was a kid? Learning the alphabet would of been a piece of cake. I can see all the spelling bee trophies I would of won thanks to Eva Zeisel and Hans Wegner.
Marian Bantjes considers herself “independently pursuing a combination of illustration and design.” She really understands how to capture a spirit in typography. Ironically, she designed the Design Matters Live poster, an event we featured earlier this week. Take a look at Marian Bantjes’ website to gain a better understanding of where her organic typography stems from.
