Shave and a Haircut: 2012 SEGD Conference: The Bridge
Last week (June 7–9) the Society for Environmental Graphic Design (SEGD) held its annual conference in New York City. For the final session on Friday, June 8 of the 2012 SEGD Conference: The Bridge Anna Sharp and her colleagues at the New York design firm Two Twelve put together a short interstitial slide show of lettering in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Their goal was to “depict the diversity of cultures, essence of the two boroughs, celebrate typography, etc. A mix of churches, schools, courthouses, police stations, bars, apartments, fences, sewers, etc.” I provided the roughly 300 images used for the short video from my collection of over 40,000 photographs of lettering in New York City. I also donated a signed copy of Helvetica and the New York City Subway System to the SEGD auction.
