Completely hand-made, crafted with paper, glue, illustration board, and wood, these letters were experiments in taking a flat object into a three-dimensional world.
‘S’ | this script ‘s’ is carefully carved out of two layers of wood for added thickness. I wanted the hardness of the wood to play with the softness of the curves in the script. It definitely added a level of difficulty, but the outcome was worth it.
‘H’ | choosing Helvetica was not an accident for this experiment, it resembles Jacob’s ladder form that it takes. I wanted to explore the form as a function and this piece is a fully expandable ladder.
‘Z’ | for Zed I wanted to explore shapes within shapes and a ‘Z’ can be found perfectly within a square, or a pixel, if you will. Fully expandable as well, this letter comes with its very own ‘div’ container box.
I would love to hear any feedback or comments you may have. Have you worked on any three-dimensional projects? Have you had great success or run into any issues? I look forward to hearing from you!
