Bernal Neighbor Hope Meng is is putting her design skills to work political change. She tells Bernalwood:
Wanted to let you know about my own little protest happening over here on unassuming Banks Street.
I’m a graphic designer living, working, and raising my kids with Bernal Hill as my backyard. For the past 2 years, I’ve been working on a personal passion called Monogram Project. It’s a slightly insane typography exercise to draw every combination of 2 letters possible with our 26-letter alphabet.
Following the absolutely heartbreaking results of the 2016 election, it suddenly became clear to me what this project wanted to be: my own form of peaceful resistance. I launched monogramproject.com on Inauguration Day. ALL proceeds for the next 4 years (please let it be only 4 years) will be donated to organizations that work to ensure our civil liberties and protect the equality of all people. I’ll choose a different worthy organization each quarter and announce it on my website.
I am taking my broken heart and I am making it into art.
