The Great Divide

Typeforce 8

Typeforce 8

Typeforce is an annual typographic exhibition hosted by Firebelly Design and the Co-Prosperity Sphere.

 Fueled by political anxiety over the new president, our ongoing “fake news” debacles, and this recent cultural shift, I brought in an idea to my studio-mates at  Delicious Design League . After countless mornings spent discussing the increasing flexibility of truth, we kept coming back to the same question: How do we bridge this great divide?

The final piece was expertly printed by the DDL Printshop from 12 panes of plexiglass, 30-some layers of ink, a custom pine frame, and a whole lot of determination. Endless thanks to Tyler Deal, whose relentless optimism and crystal clear planning made this a total dream.
