I was approached by the Friends of the Public Garden, a non-profit organization in Boston, about the possibility of translating their corporate branding into an inscriptional signage project. They supplied the arrangement of the text, but allowed me to customize the letter forms in proportion to the scale of the sign, which is 29"x 32". Rendering typography, that is, designs using typefaces, into lettercarving can be a tricky business, considering that what may look restful and appropriate on a computer screen or at the top of a sheet of letterhead will likely lose its values when enlarged for the sake of signage. One of the shop's most rewarding challenges, the project now overlooks one of the busiest and picturesque intersections in Boston, with the Public Garden on one side and Beacon Hill on the other.
