Type Hike is a collaborative non-profit design project that celebrates and supports the outdoors though typography. It was created by David Rygiol and James Louis Walker. The project was born from the belief that all designers are obligated to use their talent and ability to make the word a more beautiful place.

100% of the profits from the shop will be donated to the National Park Foundation. Depending on the specific purchase, the amount donated is between 50%-70%.

Here is a look at the project's milestones:
