Creative Review:

Hat-trick design’s Jim Sutherland has created a typographic chess set based on characters from the Hoefler & Frere-Jones face Champion. A edition of 50 sets has been produced, using laser-cut acrylic for the pieces. The King, represented by a capital K, of course, is 50mm tall, the pawns 30mm. While Champion lends itself well to this new use, Sutherland says he had to make a couple of adjustments – the Q and P have been redrawn to make them more stable and the Kt ligature (for the Knight) has been redrawn.
