Our friend and frequent collaborator Marc Weidenbaum of disquiet.com recently approached us with another sonically potent assignment. This year marks the fifth semester that Marc has taught a course on the role of sound in the media landscape at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. He asked Boon to design four posters that could illustrate four core questions, and ideally cross-pollinate his class with students from other departments. We selected MuirMcNeil’s Intersect typeface as the basis for the series—the letterforms visually resonate, lending the typography the sonic voice that can appear simultaneously harmonious and discordant (depending on your viewing distance and angle). Check out what Marc is up to over at disquiet.com.
