Poketo is teaming with renowned letterist and graphic designer Erik Marinovich to present Always Play Amongst Friends, a collaborative exhibition of prints by Brooklyn and San Francisco based graphic design collective Friends of Type. The four artists in the collective—Aaron Carámbula, Erik Marinovich, Dennis Payongayong, and Jason Wong—will be taking over Poketo’s gallery walls, covering them from floor to ceiling with a wallpaper of original typographic design and lettering meant to create a fully immersive experience for the viewer. The exhibition will include eight exclusive framed letterpress prints printed by San Francisco based boutique print house Aesthetic Union—two prints per each Friends of Type artist, each a limited edition of 25. Additionally, the newly released Friends of Type Keep Fresh, Stay Rad postcard box sets will also be available both in-store and online during the duration of the exhibition. The opening party will take place on Thursday, October 9th from 6-8pm at the Poketo Flagship, and the exhibition will be on view through October 27th. Refreshments will be served!
