#LDF13: ‘Unique’ by Evelin Kasikov
Kasikov’s eclectic mix of letters is designed in true London style—trash, glam, techno, kitsch, vintage and super-modern all happily mixed together. Each letter is different and unique; one is reminiscent of blackletter, there’s a neon-sign letter and kitsch diamond shapes.The letters are embroidered onto paper.
