Egyptian Slate Type Specimen

With the brief set by ISTD for their 2014 Student Competition, the task was to create a new and exciting way to present Egyptian Slate Pro in a specimen. 

Using the idea of children's play blocks I created an engaging and interactive specimen, allowing the user to get a tangible feel for the typeface, while having a little fun trying to create words (which is harder than it looks with the letters there).

All encased in a hand-made wooden box with a small sleeve, this type specimen breaks from the traditional booklet concept.
