Flight 93 National Memorial. Now that it’s been officially revealed, I can now reveal that Paul Murdoch Architects and the National Park Service picked our office to be the graphic design and signage consultant in building the memorial.
The objective for the representation of the names was to create a design that has the quality of being contemplative and inspirational, and would evoke a timeless tribute to the heroes of United Flight 93.
The font Whitney Semi Bold Small Caps was chosen for its simplicity and the angular detail of select letterforms. The angular detail relates to subtle architectural elements of the Memorial design. Each name is cut into a 30 x 96 inch white marble panel with a horizontal brushed black stainless steel inlay.
