PRODUCT STORY
Steven says: These typography puzzles were born out of a gift I made for my son. He was turning 2 and was learning letters and how to spell his name, so I wanted to make him a letter puzzle of his name that would be a fun way to help him learn. A lot of wooden letter puzzles use bubble cartoon fonts, poor quality materials or finishes of indeterminate origin. The design goals were to use an actual modern typeface, use actual hardwoods and hardwood plys. and non-toxic non-VOC paints.

After the gift was finished I redesigned the puzzles for design aficionados as Lorem Ipsum, and Helvetica. The result mixes modern design, with hint of childhood nostalgia that makes great gift for typography lovers, new and old.

Each piece is hand finished and numbered, and the series could evolve to include additional typefaces or custom lettered puzzles.

Steven got the idea for his Typography Puzzles while planning a birthday gift for his 2-year-old son. We love that each piece is hand finished and numbered, and that no toxic materials are used in the process. Take a look at the product story to learn more, then let us know if you love this design.

This is so cool. Everyone is always looking for something earth friendly and different here it is. Kids are surrounded by chemicals on everything they touch. This way they won't be.
