Ben Eine




A typography obsessive, Eine's fascinated by how "letters change shape when combined with other ones". His favourites being "e" and "m", his least "the letter 'o', because it needs to be a perfect circle or oval and it looks the most wrong if you don't get it right". Generally, though, each letter takes about one hour to create.

It was after years of "tagging" his own name across London that the alphabet project was accidentally conceived; fearing being caught without permission to paint "Eine" across four shutters, he left having painted just the two "e"s from his name, then, looking at a photo of them later, fell in love with how alone they looked "slightly abstract, slightly weird".
