Client:
Robin Hood Foundation
Art Direction:
Michael Bierut, Pentagram

This program is responsible for building dozens of libraries in under-funded New York City public schools. Many architects contributed designs, and Pentagram was responsible for most of the graphics. We often hired illustrators or photographers to create murals and graphics, but artwork was also generated through workshops with the kids.
