Teachers: The Re-brand

NPR's Studio 360 invited New York design studio Hyperakt to create a "new visual vocabulary that reflects the multi-dimensional role of teachers." The re-branding project yielded a repository of vibrant and dynamic images, posters and logos. It was so well received that Hyperakt has released the work under a non-commercial Creative Commons license so educators can print and display the images. See the results as well as the process behind the project here.

If FORM were a person, this would be a little peek into its brain. Cool things. Random thoughts. Even the silly and stupid stuff. Only without all the icky gooey bits.
