Good Design: Andrew Capener Designer Scrabble

Scrabble concept created by Andrew Capener via Design Crush

It's really not that difficult to beat me in Scrabble (most likely because the moment I see the mixed up tiles I forget almost every word I've ever learned past "cat" or "dog,") but at least this way I could focus on the pretty board and it's different tiles as opposed to my losing score.

A little more on the project thanks to Monoscope:

“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.”

(Too bad it was just a concept. Looks like I may just have to make my own!)
