This image is from an exhibition called Typeforce 9 in which Chicago designers are encouraged to create works coming out of their research and practice. I've been studying typographic forms and materials as they relate to identity at colleges and universities. KNEEL comes out of the 2016 NFL season's controversy surrounding Colin Kaepernick and presents the authoritarian view of a graphic emblem, their jersey numbers which identify the players, and the official Flag Code in vinyl on the wall.
This exhibit competition is organized by the University of Illinois at Chicago Graduate College and the University Library.
