Pasted is a collage app, from James Mercer of The Shins and Zeke Howard and Ben Fogarty of The Brigade, a design studio in Portland. It’s an inventive tool that lets you mask photos, add filters, and layer graphics to make artwork. After creating their logo with Scandia Stencil, they expanded the concept into a full alphabet pack, so you can paste the two-tone letters into your collage and they’ll react to the filters. It’s always fun to see our fonts used in creative ways — if you’re ever interested in licensing for a mobile app, just get in touch.
“Stencil fonts feel like they have a unique place in collage art. As a result, Scandia really felt right. It’s almost like some of the geometric stickers were used to assemble the logo.”—Ben Fogarty
A couple of Pique things turned up at once so here we are. Check out Nicole Dotin’s typeface in use for an important NYC Health campaign and then watch two videos about its design. While we’re at it, go ahead and take 10% off any license of Pique offered on the site until end-of-day Friday, August 4th (that’s the ‘week’ in Pique Week). Just use the coupon code ‘piqueweek’ at checkout.
In Use: Bare it All
Thanks to Quentin Schmerber for tipping us off to this NYC campaign, after spotting Pique on the subway. “Bare it All” encourages LGBTQ patients to have open discussions with their doctors. And to spread the message, Pique boldly sweeps in across black and white images in print ads and their video.

How was it made?
In the latest Fontribute video, Erin McLaughlin and Thomas Jockin deconstruct and discuss Pique and Lokal Script in some detail.
After watching the video, Nicole picked up her brush marker to (re)construct Pique and show how the marker underpins the design.
