The Sail Series used the structure and shape of the sails to define the rules and limits of the letter forms. Originally all white, the sails were painted orange, leaving the stitching visible to be used as construction lines to guide the design. In addition to the design process behind the project, the act of painting the large letters on the sails was a nod to traditional sign painting and graffiti.
