Teach your kids to become font-designers

This toy prototype helps your kids not only their ABCs but also the basics of font design. Instead of 26 distinct letters, the oversize, 4-inch recycled-cardboard cubes (known as “Letterboxes”) divvy up the alphabet into combining geometric parts. The cubes can be stacked in all sorts of combinations to produce a variety of shapes and letterforms. The typeface is available as a free download.

Cardboard sky

The architecure studen Daniel Morrison created this cardboard sky. I like how he calls the carboard ‘humble material’.
The design makes use of small star shaped pieces of cardboard that are slotted together and folded to provide structure. These individual pieces can be assembled into any size collection. the resulting patchwork creates a graphical pattern that comes about randomly from the pr-existing patterns on the boxes. By digitizing each pattern, the assemblages can even be strategically assembled to create images or messages.

For the love of carboard

Ok, you probably know by now this blog is, for a small part, dedicated to the best non-material ever: cardboard. So I just had to show you the work of British designer Gilles Miller. I stumbled upon his work through an article on designboom.

Disposable technology

Fascinating ‘cardboard’ thought from Britisch designer Kyle Bean. A series of cardboard sculptures as a response to our consumer relationship with technology and rapid evolution of this technology.
