"Americans may know Radio City Music Hall as the nation's premier entertainment venue, but visual artists know it as a monument to design. Its marquee is an American icon; its interior was one of the first indoor spaces to be designated a landmark by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Radio City has worked with legendary designers from Donald Deskey to Lucian Bernhard. "Sixty-seven years after Radio City first opened, Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates undertook a $70 million restoration of the landmark's then faded interior. Their extensive research into Radio City's archives yielded indispensable clues about the facility's original carpeting, wall coverings and upholstery fabrics, but nothing about the Art Deco lettering which appears throughout the building. Working with Two Twelve Associates, who developed an updated signage program for Radio City, I (with Kevin Dresser) created a family of typefaces and symbols for the building's 1999 renovation. The new typefaces helped not only restore Radio City's grandeur, but bring its signage up to code with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990."
