Designing the ABC

Our Supercool new intern, Sarah Wilbois, started yesterday. A graphic design graduate from Mainz in Germany, she's with us on a 2-month internship programme run by the Principia School of Language in Worcestershire.

We're hoping Sarah'll get lots out of her time with us … not least because she very kindly came bearing a gift; a beautiful, and beautifully clever, pop-up alphabet book called ABC3D. Thanks Sarah – nice!

Coincidentally, Sarah's gift ties in very nicely with her first project here at Supercool; the creation of an ampersand for Not My Type …

Not My Type is a collaborative project bringing together more than 30 designers, artists and illustrators, each of whom has been tasked with creating a different letter of the alphabet (or additional character, such as the ampersand) for a forthcoming show at the Created in Birmingham shop.

You can learn more about the project, see who else is taking part and find some interesting typographical links over on the Not My Type Facebook Group. The Not My Type exhibition at the CiB shop will open on (election day) Thursday 6th May.
