This decorative alphabet was produced by Nigel Bents, Paul Oakley and Jonny Holmes at Chelsea College of Art & Design. Based on a downloaded Bodoni Poster font, it was designed digitally by students using Illustrator, laser cut out of 3mm plywood by Cut Laser Cut in Vauxhall and mounted on type-high block by Stef Willis in the Chelsea college workshop.
It was then printed at Graham Bignell’s New North Press in Hoxton. There they will remain; and in time, no doubt, be added to. An example of a digital start leading to an analogue finish.
Limited edition posters available for sale. More photos here.
