Lettering for the Hot 10 in Bon Appétit
| 15 AUGUST 2012
Bon Appéit magazine commissioned several pieces of lettering for the "Hot 10" list of America's best new restaurants in their September 2012 issue. This issue was a chance to combine two of our favorite design motifs: dots and dramatic swashes. Berton Hasebe worked with creative director Alex Grossman on the cover, and Christian Schwartz worked with art director Elizabeth Spiridakis on numbers from 1-10 in the interior, playfully interweaving the dots with the photography to create a distinctive, handmade look that tied the whole package together.

Christian Schwartz drew a Fellini-esque 7 and handful of ornaments for the cover story on 7 great pasta dishes from brilliant New York chef Sara Jenkins (chef and owner of one of the studio's favorite restaurants, Porsena), for the February issue of Bon Appetit. Art director Elizabeth Spiridakis used xlyene transfers to give a warm and organic quality to all of the display type in the story.
