Commissioned by Alex Grossman and Kristin Eddington, Miguel Reyes and Christian Schwartz provided eleven pieces of lettering for the 2014 Hot Ten, Bon Appétit's annual list of the ten best new restuarants in the US. Building on Graphik, the influences ranged from 1990s 'normcore' references to Pee-wee's Playhouse, and the final set shows a lot of diversity within specifc limits. Miguel and Christian also worked on the cover lettering. You can see a small video flipping through all of the spreads on Miguel's Instagram feed.
