Posting Letters


A romantic relationship between two designers in New York turned into a cross-continental postcard project when one of them moved away for a year.

Nei Valente and Kate Cullinane had been dating for four months in New York when Nei had to return home to Brazil for a year. Not wanting to loose touch, the two designers came up with a project that would let them keep in touch and indulge their love of typography. For the next year, Kate and Nei took photos of letters they saw on the streets and on signs in New York and São Paulo, printed them onto postcards and sent them back and forth to each other in alphabetical order. The resulting collections capture the creative and expressive artistic cultures that are so celebrated in New York and São Paulo.
