NO DIC­TIONARY is needed to ap­pre­ci­ate the al­pha­betin­spired ty­pog­ra­phy trend.

Letters as dec­o­ra­tion are used in ev­ery cor­ner of the home and, let’s face it, who wouldn’t feel inspired by bold words of en­cour­age­ment or a name in their spe­cial place?

If you want some­thing dif­fer­ent to per­son­alise a spe­cial room, you’ll love the quirky cre­ations of Michel Ravid and Jessie Kotzen from Mooza De­signs.

The cre­ative pair pro­duce letters and name­plates for chil­dren’s bed­rooms, male/ fe­male signs, ar­rows and di­rec­tions, num­bers and some in­spi­ra­tional words.

They say it’s about mak­ing peo­ple feel spe­cial and inspired.

“All our de­signs are hand crafted in­di­vid­u­ally by us with ut­most at­ten­tion and love. It’s fun, colour­ful and con­tem­po­rary,’’ Ravid says.

“All de­signs are from an acrylic base (which makes them light­weight but durable) topped with hand-cut unique pa­pers, depend­ing on what we can source.”

Pa­pers in­clude Ja­panese, retro/vintage, funky and quirky styles.

The de­signs are then sealed with a resin coat­ing to give them a high-gloss fin­ish and cre­ate the ef­fect of a ce­ramic tile.

The full-time moth­ers work from their home-based busi­ness on the north­ern beaches. “Mooza De­signs evolved as an out­let for our cre­ative ideas and pas­sion for de­sign,” Kotzen says.

“The jour­ney be­gan with a weekly stall at Padding­ton Mar­kets.

“We de­vel­oped and hand­made a va­ri­ety of prod­ucts to show­case there.”

Ravid brings her graphic de­signer back­ground to the busi­ness while Kotzen says grow­ing up in an artis­tic fam­ily helped her un­der­stand­ing for de­sign.

Their favourite in the range is the WC (man/ women) re­versible ply­wood signs and the duo says their min­i­mal­ist look has wide ap­peal and fit per­fectly in the homes of to­day’s style savvy buy­ers.
