Student Work – Andrew Capener

Designed by Andrew Capener | Country: United States

“The A-1 Scrabble designer edition. The purpose of this project was to revive an old, but loved game: Scrabble. The idea was to excite people about typography 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.”

    I would purchase this in a heartbeat. I’m sure it’d be a little on the pricey side, but well worth it, and very classic.

    A refreshing, modern take on a classic game. Wonderful work!

    Please let me know if this ever goes up for sale.

    If you can arrange to produce it you’ll definitively win some money here and make a lot of people happy with the game ;)

    Good work.

    Very classy, why not make a Kickstarter project out of it, I would support it in a minute!

    Just have to say that this is an inspired idea. It looks absolutely gorgeous. The idea of sets specifically around certain typefaces would be a delicious prospect for anyone who remotely has an interest in design, type and words.

    I’m with Joran Aerns – why not start a Kickstarter project? I’d definitely be in.
