This is Walker Expanded, a graphic identity that functions as a typeface but instead of bold and italic fonts is grouped into related words, or vocabularies, and repeating patterns; it sets lines of words and textures that, like a roll of tape, can be applied to virtually anything—from printed matter and Web sites to merchandise or even architecture. __
Walker Expanded is featured in the exhibition Graphic Design: Now in Production, on view at the Walker October 22, 2011–January 22, 2012.
