Graphic Designer Creates A Mathematical Way Of Reading The Alphabet
Graphic designer Mark Gonyea, who previously explored a new way of counting, has a new project that gives the alphabet a mathematical reinterpretation.
‘Letters by the Number’ takes the 26 letters of the alphabet and multiplies them according to their numeric placement. For example, ‘A’ is a single ‘A’ while ‘B’ is two ‘Bs’, and ‘Z’ is a series of 26 interconnected ‘Zs’.
Gonyea adds visual oomph to the series by having each design correspond to a different color; red numbers can be squared, blue numbers can be divided by three, and orange numbers are multiples of five.
Head over to Kickstarter to learn more about the project and to pledge for it.
