Luckily the exhibit "Letter As Image,Image As Letter," described as "six designers reinventing lettering and creating new vocabularies of design," also has a great online presence. Check out the incredible restaurant logos by Fili - including the design for one of my favorite restaurants, The Pink Door in Seattle. The site also allows you to view the beautiful illustrative efforts of Michael Doret, Gerard Huerta, Tom Nikosey, Daniel Pelavin, and Tom White.
I'm glad that headline caught my attention this morning - although I'm now distracted checking out the work of some fascinating designers and illustrators. It's very satisfying to know that some kids do grow up to create restaurant logos the calibre of Louise Fili's work.
