F Words

Volunteering at our neighborhood elementary school, PS 217, in Brooklyn, John and Stephanie introduce graphic design principles to fourth and fifth graders during a Magnet Arts Program and put these concepts into practice in published exercises. We were so inspired working with this diverse group of student — they brought such unique perspectives and insights into each execution of the assignment.

Below are a few highlights from our F words project. Typographically design a word starting with the letter F. The class quite perked up at the announcement of this exercise.

A collection of final designs were digital printed and shared with the class and school leadership.

Special thanks to Judy Brandwein and PS 217 Teachers and Staff for creating such a warm and creative environment.
