RFE/RL in Prague

Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Prague, Czech Republic Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty is a media broadcasting company established by the Broadcasting Board of Governors and the U.S. State Department. It reports the news in countries where a free press is banned by the government or not fully established. C&G Partners designed an outdoor typographical sculpture that speaks of RFE/RL’s mission to promote liberty and democratic values. Designed for the new headquarters in Prague, on a busy street filled with cars and trolleys, the 10-foot-high, custom-drawn, dimensional letterforms create a sculptural installation that changes language depending on direction of approach, either “LIBERTY” or “SVOBODA,” the same word with the same amount of letters in Czech. Each letter pair intersects on a central vertical axis. The "Freedom Monument" functions as an outdoor sign, performs as a public art piece and acts as a brand communication. The project was awarded the 2009 “Certificate of Typographic Excellence” from the Type Directors Club.
