The Yiddish Stairs

Company: Square
Role: Art Director, Designer

Every community group at Square is given a spotlight month where they can "take over" the office with a variety of visuals, events, showcases, pop-ups, etc. The Jewish community group wanted to have a light-hearted and educational art installation in the office that showcased commonly known and used Yiddish Words. I created a icon set to illustrate the words and accompanied them with meanings and examples. We also included one poster with member of our executive leadership as an "Easter Egg." The posters were affixed to the fronts of tables that ascend our prominent center staircase. The piece is titled "The Yiddish Stairs: Steps For a Kosher Jewish Vocabulary!"
