On Thursday, October 9th, Poketo teamed up 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—took over Poketo’s gallery walls, covering them from floor to ceiling with a wallpaper of original typographic design and lettering. The exhibition also launched eight exclusive letterpress prints printed by boutique print house Aesthetic Union. Check out photos from the opening below, and stop by the Poketo Flagship to experience the installation in person through October 27th. And in the case that you can’t make it by, all eight exclusive prints as well as the Friends of Type Postcard Box Set are available at poketo.com.
