Item details

Originally created for Etsy's Holiday Pop-Up shop in NYC. They invited 10 artists to create a portrait of an individual whom they have found inspiring, live in the storefront window. Having been inspired by John Hughes, all of us at FoT felt the last line in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was perfect for the occasion…. a reminder to those who are too busy to stop and enjoy life. Of all the various interpretations of this Ferris Bueller line, it's cool that this theater in the Philippines decided to bootleg ours (although we probably wouldn't have stretched the art so much).

Meet the Creator

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.
