Starwood Hotel mural Exhibit

Starwood Hotel mural

A typographic mural by Guts and Glory at the new DC hotel merges local and global.

For the lobby of their new Washington, DC, location, Starwood Hotels envisioned a large mural containing the names of all the countries along Embassy Row. Oakland, California-based design collective Guts and Glory began by developing a custom typeface and setting each name by hand. They then wove the 60 embassy names together with a map of Washington DC to create an intricate mural that merges the local and the international.
