A woodcut alphabet

Current Foundation Diploma students specialising in Graphic Design and Illustration have designed a  woodcut alphabet. Each student presented two letterforms; the design was from an existing typeface of their choosing.  Six students then spent a morning printing them on the print presses in Foundation’s Wellington Terrace Studios, creating samples of different papers, and different press applications.

The idea behind the project came from Technician Becky Haughton, who through introducing a woodcut safety exercise encouraged  the students to carve letterforms in wood. The result is an alphabet made up of different letterforms which are available for use by all Foundation students.
