Keep Your Prayers
2018
Keep Your Prayers is a funeral for the timeworn and commonplace “thoughts and prayers” response to moments of crisis. The typeface, Monarch, portrays an elegance reminiscent of detailed tombstone engravings and political monuments, yet the contemporary stylized details of the type invoke an unnerving feeling about the future. Free ‘In Memoriam’ cards were given away to serve as a reminder to ask where these problems come from and why they exist.

Keep Your Prayers was included in Typeforce 9, an exhibition dedicated to typography and language.
