A modular lettering system

AlphaBetas is a modular lettering system designed by Ben Stevens. Every letter in the English alphabet can be constructed using a set of 20 ‘building blocks’ – a set of simple shapes designed to fit together in different orientations. The entire alphabet can be built using 142 blocks.

Currently the AlphaBetas lettering system features uppercase letters only. Future versions will include numbers and punctation marks.

The interactive demo above shows how letters and words can be constructed using the building blocks of the lettering system. Tap on the icon above to edit the text.
