Thanks to all for the amazing work at our urban cross stitch workshop! The two teams tackled the basketball court wire fencing at Tompkins Square Park on a BEAUTIFUL spring day. In an epic battle of boys (“I Believe) vs. girls (“Your Magic is Real”), the girls kicked ass!!! Not only did the girls have the more difficult typeface (blackletter), but they also had more characters and detailing (highlighting!) to complete.
After spending a beautiful afternoon cross-stitching the fence with typography, this workshop makes me want to do more large scale and hands-on typography!
What did you think of the experience of crating large scale public typography?
