On February 22, 2018, the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial became our 60th National Park, renamed Gateway Arch NP. Each Type Hike poster uses man-made design to honor our majestic wilderness. Photography, illustration and type strive to tell a story, reminding us of untamed places filled with adventure. In its latest series, Type Hike steps out of the wild into our 60th National Park, a true intersection of man-made marvel and natural beauty.

Type Hike’s fifth series: ARCH, features 60 representations of America's 60th National Park, the Gateway Arch. Contributing designers have an affiliation with the city of St. Louis and were presented with the challenge of creatively expressing the city’s most overused icon. Throughout the series are responses of form, material, cartography, history, conspiracy theories, and anthropomorphism through typography, illustration, and messaging.

“Egyptian pyramids or obelisks – seemed to be the basis of the great memorials that have kept their significance and dignity across time. Neither an obelisk nor a rectangular box nor a dome seemed right on this site or for this purpose. But here, at the edge of the Mississippi River, a great arch did seem right.”
