Red Squares

Red Squares is a set featuring 24 wooden blocks decorated with multicolored shapes and words with their modern-day Russian equivalent. I used custom lettering in this project and the graphics were inspired by vintage soviet toys. All the design elements were silk screened onto the blocks. The blocks can also be used as a puzzle, or as a large building blocks set. Each facet of the block features a Russian alphabet letter, a Russian word, an English translation, as well as an icon for the word. Instead of the child friendly terms, the word choice is humorous and features words that are related to the current Russian political situation.
