R is For...

Item details

Ben Peterson, an early supporter of Friends of Type, asked us to contribute to a project he was working on together with The Cornerstone Academy of Social Action to bring lettering murals to the lunch room of PS189x. The murals represent the school’s core values of C.A.R.E.S. – Considerate / Accountable / Respectful / Empowered / Successful.

The other words were created by Nicole Killian “Considerate”, Mari Suh “Accountable”, Pablo Medina and Makiko Higashi “Empowered”, and Meg Paradise “Successful”.

Friends of Type features original typographic design and lettering – fresh visual content – practically every day, by the four primary contributors. Posts are meant to log ideas, express ourselves, and inspire each other and our readers. The last week of every month we feature a guest designer, someone we admire and think will elevate our work and the site through their contribution. This is a sketchbook, an archive, a dialogue. The posts are sketches and ideas on visualized language; a collaborative habit born out of the realtime interactions that made us friends in the first place.
