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.

A sheet in the packaging includes information about moves and chess notation as well as a selection of chess-themed quotations. A set of postcards, also included in the pack, show how each piece moves.
