Love this gorgeous Scrabble set designed by BYU design grad, Andrew Capener. My only (minor) critique is that the birch exterior case doesn’t entirely match the rest of the walnut pieces, but all is forgiven once you look at what’s inside. The A-1 set is currently in production planning stages, but you can sign up to receive email updates on how to buy A-1 when it becomes available.
The A-1 Scrabble designer edition. The purpose of this project was to revive an old, but loved game: Scrabble. The idea was to excite people about typograqphy by giving them the ability to choose what font their scrabble set would come in. The set would come in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.
