On November 15, 2014, Mollie Edgar and I conducted a typography workshop for the Teen Creative Agency at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Quoting Bruno Munari's ABC con Fantasia, we gave each of the seven participants a limited set of modular shapes (culled from the MCA's distinct northern staircase), basic dimensions, and loose instructions to create randomly assigned glyphs. By the end of the two-hour workshop, Eli Adams, Baylee Champion, Diedre Corrigan, Ben Medina, Richard Medina, Amaya Mensinger, and Christopher Molina completed a set of letters and numbers as well as some punctuation. We photographed each character and used these photographs to create a font.




I designed a clear bumper sticker for Trunk Show, a mobile exhibition space often located near Chicago's Eckhart Park.




I did a window display for Medium Cool art book fair 2014.
