Being creative is seen by many as accessing the part of your mind that allows you to play, to be in a state where you aren’t judging your own ideas, just letting them flow, seeing what comes out and then deciding what works or what doesn’t.

So it will come as no surprise to hear that after experimenting with letterpress and wood block printing, Levi decided to start branching out until he came up with the LEGO letterpress. The result of which is a playful dotted font that can bring some fun back to your designs.
