Type that’s not type
This is often a fun exercise. Finding everyday objects that look like type but are not typefaces frequently leads to surprising design solutions.
Several years ago I was working on an annual report for a food company and I used string beans to make initial capital letters.
V and F are really easy to make from string beans. And amazingly, and only now do I see the coincidence of these two letters. The company I was working for was Vie de France.
There are a few complete alphabets in the examples below but even the individual objects that were photographed by the class may become the start of an entire alphabet in the future.
