The Queen’s House Founders Grotesk Mono

QK–RM used Pitch & Founders Grotesk Mono in their programme for the Queen’s House

London-based design firm, QK-RM designed the environmental graphics programme for the Queen’s House. They write: ‘Commissioned in 1616, the Queen’s House is one of the most important buildings in British architectural history, being the first consciously classical building to have been constructed in Britain. It was Inigo Jones’s first major commission after returning from his 1613–1615 grand tour of Roman, Renaissance and Palladian architecture in Italy. The building reflects Renaissance ideals of mathematical, classical proportion and harmony which would have appeared revolutionary to English eyes in its day.’

The design programme uses Pitch and Founders Grotesk Mono with with great sensitivity

QK-RM writes: ‘We were commissioned at the start of a two year master plan to review a new environmental graphics and way-finding scheme. The first step was to remove the myriad of municipal design languages that have crept in to the building in recent years. The new design idea carefully observes the historical legacy of the house whilst acknowledging the contemporary context within which it exists.’

Black Suburbia: from Levittown to Ferguson Founders Grotesk

AN EXHIBITION AT THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY’S SCHOMBURG CENTER, DESIGNED BY PENTAGRAM

Black Suburbia: From Levittown to Ferguson is an exhibition presented by The New York Public Library’s Shomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, one of the leading institutions focusing exclusively on African-American, African Diaspora, and African experiences. The exhibition examines the complex narrative of the African-American suburb from the 20th century to today, looking to communities such as Hempstead, NY, Ferguson, MO, and Shaker Heights, OH, as case studies for a contradictory yet hopeful dream. Pentagram’s Eddie Opara and team designed exhibition graphics and print materials for Black Suburbia which address the unique triumphs and challenges of the black suburban struggle.

THE EXHIBITION DESIGN COMBINES OUTSIDERS, TYPEWRITER, & FOUNDERS GROTESK

Developed in collaboration with the National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra University, Black Suburbia, tackles issues such as suburban segregation, institutional discrimination, and residential racism in black communities from the late 1800s to current day. Opara wanted to stress the severity of these issues in the exhibition’s logo, which sets type within an upside-down American flag. The application references the United States Flag Code, which states that the flag “should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.” The red stripes of the flag are echoed throughout the titling of the exhibition.

The exhibition design combines A2–Type’s Outsiders & Typewriter with Klim’s Founders Grotesk.
