The Sketchbook Project
Experimental Typographer
2012

A typographic piece as a response to The Sketchbook Project's first annual global snack project called The Meal, which the team in New York, based at The Brooklyn Art Library, describes in a few simple but beautiful words as “One moment. One meal. Let’s eat”.

Thousands of people around the world participated in a simultaneous meal with strangers, which took place on 24th Feb 2012 at 12 pm EST. The aim of the project was to encourage the artists to “take a moment from our hectic lives” in order “to inspire a feeling of community across geographic and cultural boundaries”, while addressing the statement “you are what you eat”. The project was a call for our awareness of the growing problem in the struggle against global hunger.
