Thumbs Up: Nick Beese’s ‘BSLphabet’ typefont!

Posted on December 6, 2012

Nick Beese, who is a Senior Visual Designer for the BBC, has created a unique typefont that combines the written alphabet with the British Sign Language alphabet. Each letter features a pair of hands showing how a letter can be fingerspelled.

He told us that he wanted “to create something that was fun, modern and unique but also had a subliminal message. The more people that know BSL, the more sign language will be celebrated!’”We love BSL_BSLphabet_Yellow

The BSLphabet typeface is currently available as a print, with more products using the typefont set to follow.
