Philadelphia-based artist and illustrator Noah Camp has made a name for himself with amazing 3D lettering and typography works that have landed him gigs with the likes of FOX, BBC, Entertainment Weekly and many others. When he is not working with high-profile companies, however, Camp creates fun illustrations that he shares with his social media followers. His latest project: alphabet inspired by your favorite ’90s toys.
In a series of works, titled “90s Toypography,” Camp mixes nostalgia with his love for typography, and shapes toys into letters. What makes his effort really impressive is that each toy-letter is inspired by the iconic pop culture work which name starts with that letter. For example, J is made out of numerous Jenga bricks while letter N is made to look like a Nintendo Entertainment System console.
“It’s time to dig out your best pair of JNCOs, put your crystal Pepsi on ice, and join me on a trip down memory lane,” says Camp on his website. “36 Days of Type 2019 is all about your favorite childhood toys from the 90s. ’90s Toypography’ is going to make you nostalgic for a time when Blockbuster was alive, Sun-In was all the rage, and hacky sack was cool.”
