Bierut for the USA
Men’s Vogue asked Michael Bierut (not Beirut) to design a more politically neutral lapel pin. Bierut’s typographic solution reorganizes the familiar “USA” configuration into a monogram that displays its own kind of unity. The pins have been produced in a limited edition of 5,000 and are now available at a recession-priced $10 each from Men’s Vogue with proceeds going to Puppies Behind Bars. - Via www.pentagram.com
All I have to say is, "typographic solution".
