Niral Parekh's "Type of Letters", is an installation of mail arranged in cubby holes to make letters, words and numbers. The typography treatment was created from a combination of more than 3,000 pieces of mail such as postcards, newspapers, packages, direct mailers etc. "Many consider today’s world to be a digital world – a world of digital spaces and communications." Parekh says, "However, it is surprising to see, that even in todays time we heavily rely on and use ‘old school’ forms of communication (letters, newspapers etc.). In addition we are pleasantly surprised and appreciative of something that is created for ‘real’ – something physical that we can touch and feel outside of the digital space." The project took Best of Show in this year’s TDC Communication Design competition.
