Cooper Hewitt

September 26 2016

One of the projects I’m currently working on is an identity project for a new Canadian charity. I’ve been trying to find a typeface that’s legible and distinctive, because the charity will be sending people in areas of the world that may not speak or read English. I’ve found myself entranced by Cooper Hewitt’s typeface, which is open source and available for unrestricted public use.

In researching the typeface, I stumbled onto Pentagram’s new-ish case study about the project. It’s a very long read, but so incredibly insightful. In truth, I haven’t finished reading it yet. But the case study’s awesome, and I couldn’t wait to share it.

Check out Pentagram’s case study here.
