The A-1 Scrabble Designer Edition

Every designer out there just let out a collective Damn! after seeing Andrew Clifford Capener’s The A-1 Scrabble designer edition.

“The idea was to excite people about typograqphy by giving them the ability to choose what font their scrabble set would come in. The set would come in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.”

    That is gorgeous! …and I don’t even like scrabble.

    You’re such a tease with these awesome concept you introduce! I’ll never get over the heartbreak I experienced when I realized there is no such thing [yet] as tetris sugar 🙂

      haha! i know, i know. but they’re such lovely ideas, who knows how far off funding is. maybe the exposure will help (at least that’s the idea).

    It’s all great and everything, but there’s one troubling question: Where’s Comic Sans?!
