Typography Project Features Edible Letters Neatly Carved Out Of Real Foods
By Dorothy Tan, 18 Apr 2017
The ‘36 Days of Type’ challenge is a popular project for designers as it compels them get creative and productive—they are also interesting to follow, as everyone has a different interpretation that makes for a diverse collection of type experiments.
Based in Mumbai, India, product design student Sarah Das recently shared her typography project that may make you feel hungry—instead of using digital tools to produce her typographic creations, she has taken a handmade approach by carving letterforms out of real foods.
She used her newly acquired x-acto knife to carefully cut out neat capital letters from everyday food items, such as an avocado, a coconut, a radish, a lettuce and a strawberry.
In same cases, she uses negative space to create the letters instead—for instance, the letters ‘E’ and ‘W’ are carved out of an egg shell and a walnut shell respectively.
She has completed all 26 letters of the alphabet—you can view beautifully styled images of her brilliant food type here.
