In the January/February 2015 edition of GDUSA, Mohawk was the exclusive sponsor of the 52nd Annual People To Watch editorial feature. That kicked off a year long initiative in the pages of GDUSA by the fine paper maker to recognize the work of aspiring and seasoned designers through a series of storytelling inserts entitled “Champions of Craft.”

The second installment: a Champions of Craft piece in the March/April 2015 issue of GDUSA featuring Erik Marinovich. Marinovich, a designer and letterist, is the co-founder of Friends of Type.  The collective quickly gained a large and enthusiastic following and, almost 6 years later, it is still going strong. Marinovich has refined his craft and is now a leader in the form. He is also three years into another venture, this one with the legendary Jessica Hische.

I now continue the never ending process of refining it.”
