When graphic and type designer Andrew Byrom decided it was time for a new desk, he thought of a rather novel way to recycle the old one…

“The [veneered chip board top of the] old desk (shown above) was cut into 3.5 x 2 inch blocks,” explains Byrom, “then the text, set in my newest typeface Byrom Sans, was silk-screened onto each block in white ink.”
