BKLYN COMMONS Mural Lettering Design

Designed by Cornell University architect, interior, and set designer, Katie Vitale, BKLYN COMMONS is a new co-working space, conference room, and event space located in Prospect Lefferts and Bushwick in New York City. Commissioned by Katie and the owner of the building, the mural was lovingly lettered for the Bushwick building lobby.

The lobby mural measures 128x90in. Hand lettered using frog tape, masking tape, a measuring tape, and sketched with pencil, painted with Benjamin Moore semi-gloss wall paint.
