Type Hike: A Typographic Exploration of America's Natural Wonders
By Alison Myers
Type Hike is a collaborative non-profit design project that supports the outdoors through typography. It was born from the belief that all designers are obligated to use their talent and ability to make the world a more beautiful place. Created by David Rygiol and James Louis Walker, the project began in August of 2016 with a series of 60 designs celebrating the National Park Service Centennial. It now includes 3 unique series, focusing on national shorelines and recreation areas as well as endangered animals. 100% of the profits are donated to help protect and preserve the outdoors and its inhabitants.
