Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro

Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro

In creating the exhibition identity for Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Schapiro at the Museum of Arts and Design, we chose Le Jeune, by Commercial Type, for it's sturdy letterforms and ornate ball terminals. The font paired well with our “decorative type-interventions”, and the Schapiro-inspired exhibition color palette. All to celebrate Schapiro and the elevation of "the decorative".
