This holiday we played Connect, Ken Garland's brilliant board game (card game?). If you're a graphic designer this is about as good as parlour games get.
I don't know about you but when I see a collection of shapes and lines like that I instantly think - could I make an alphabet out of that?
The Os are normally easy. And seeing as this one is based loosely on a digital style grid the U is pretty easy too. And the N.
The M isn't quite as elegant, but it looks cool.
The connect game doesn't only consist of three lined squares though. And to be honest all these letterforms remind me a bit too much of the Mexican Olympics and all those Helveticalovers. You know the type.
So this M is a little more fun. And more appropriate for the game.
But making a full alphabet is hard. And it's a bank holiday weekend. Easter weekend. So back in the box they go. Until another time.
Still, at least I got enough letters to make COMMUNE.
