Laura Eldret, Us, 2021. Typeface. Created in collaboration with children of Milford Academy Nottingham and Fraser Muggeridge.

Us as an artwork operates as portraiture and a record of the conversations, reflections and workshops with children and teachers that lead to its creation. It explores ideas of hierarchies, authorship and ownership of spaces we share, and is informed in part by the Strathclyde model of reading that advocates for self-identification as vital to reading cultures. Us as a typeface was developed for use in the school library, created by Eldret in collaboration with school children and designer Fraser Muggeridge as part of Schools of Tomorrow, Nottingham Contemporary. The typeface is licensed under Creative Commons, free for all to use just credit us when you do.
