An Alphabet Designed By 45 Top Creatives Champions Art Education | visual data | Scoop.it

As part of their rebranding project, non-profit Free Arts NYC asked 45 top creatives to design a letter or symbol to create a font to be used in its new branding. 
Featuring the work of well-known designers, illustrators, artists and typographers, the line-up for the project includes impressive names like Michael Beirut, Diane Von Furstenberg, George Lois and brands such as Warby Parker. 
The resulting font is a wonderfully eclectic mix of artistic styles that reflects the experiences of their creators and serves to show how art has impacted their lives for the good.
