“If you could change one thing about New York, what would it be?” was the question that fellow graphic designer Yomar Augusto and I asked fifty New Yorkers from bankers on Wall Street to first generation immigrants in the Bronx. Since New Yorkers are notoriously outspoken, we were pleased with the clarity of their message and the wide variety of answers. We recorded these answers with our phone and later used them as content for the lettering that you see on our process wall. This is the first of many projects merging real stories with calligraphy and sign painting. Thanks Yomar, for an awesome project and for contributing your great energy and beautiful calligraphy. I learned a lot from you.
