Hexagonal Woodtype

Looking to innovate
with letterpress techniques, New North Press worked with Greenspace to produce a set of patterned hexagonal
blocks that can be tessellated to create letterforms, patterns and boarders. The
modular blocks were laser-cut from maple by Thomas Mayo.

Commissioned by
architects partnering on a new residential site in Hoxton, London, the printed
results are huge structural letters that reflect the development.
