To launch AIGA Baltimore’s Design Week 2012, Assistant Professsor Helen Armstrong and Zvezdana Stojmirovic led a participatory workshop. Our goal: to co-create a unique “Baltimore” alphabet. Working assembly-line style, each person filled up letter outlines with content in five minute intervals as Zvezdana and I shared the latest examples from the field and essential tips for starting participatory projects.
See and share the finished letterforms below. Scroll down to access vector versions. The Baltimore alphabet is licensed using a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial License. In other words, you may use these letterforms for non-commercial purposes as long as you attribute the creators.
