F.Y. Eye’s new Town Crier logo was created by Melinda Beck. Beck is an award-winning illustrator and graphic designer who’s work has appeared in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Harper’s Bazar and Time. Beck’s political illustrations have been acquired by the Library of Congress for their permanent collection and she’s involved in a number of contemporary social and political causes including her most recent work for the US Post Office. She has crafted a series of Title IX-related stamps pushing for greater gender inclusion within organized sports.
Our newsletter logo reimagines the Town Crier for the modern world and represents the work of F.Y. Eye as a resource for nonprofits to bring trusted, reliable information into the public square. Through our relationship with Beck, we showcase the creative energy of the socially-engaged artists in our community, and how F.Y. Eye engages with the most contemporary voices of our time.
F.Y. Eye connected with Melinda through our relationship with the Museum of Illustration, which has been working with us to expand upon the reach of our Impact Artists Network, a broad initiative that serves to connect community-engaged artists with the causes and campaigns that mean the most to them. We are thrilled to launch the inaugural issue of The Town Crier with Melinda’s vibrant logo at the top.
