#RIP #EdBenguiat
As a civilian, he lived next to my aunt in NJ for many years. By all accounts a great person. Never heard a bad word. I tried to get into his class when I was at SVA but was never able to.

Rest in Photo-Lettering.

RIP Ed Benguiat. An absolute titan. His work as a type designer— his willingness to blend styles and experiment with forms— has always been an inspiration to my practice, and his work as a graphic designer is absolutely timeless. A profound loss to the medium.

I really looked up to Ed Benguiat; whatever he was doing, wherever he was, whoever he was with, he always seemed like he was having an absolute blast. It showed in his life’s work—whenever I look at one of his faces, a smile always comes to mine. 😊

May his memory be a blessing!

Rest in Peace to Ed Benguiat, a giant of graphic design + typography. His Bookman Swash typeface is one of my all time favorites and everyone knows his legendary self-titled typeface as “the Stranger Things font.”

I found Ed Benguiat to be exceedingly generous. I first became interested in drawing type in the lead up to hosting him as a speaker at Scholastic. He provided invaluable feedback on my first display face—I will forever be grateful. Rest in peace Ed.

Ed Benguiat (Ben-gat) was a lettering artist and typeface designer who got his art education on the GI bill. It is hard to imagine him being taught. It’s hard to imagine that there was ever a time that he couldn’t just pick up a pen and draw something like this.

Just shy of his 93rd birthday, legendary type designer and lettering artist Ed Benguiat has left us after a life well-lived—but still too soon gone. Rest in Peace, dearest friend. The letters that flowed from your hand will ever remind us of your generous spirit, wit, and style.

A dear friend and relative just Passed Away. He was know as the Man of a Thousand Faces.

Ed Benguiat has passed away, just shy of his 93rd birthday. In memory of his generosity to me and so many other younger designers, and in honor of his extraordinary talent, let me show you a neat trick he shared with me when I was 18. →

I’ve just learned that the legendary Mr. Ed Benguiat passed away today. To put it simply, Ed was one of the greatest commercial artists of all time. You may never have heard of him, but you’ve seen his work. (thread)

RIP Ed Benguiat (b. 1927), “man of 1000 faces”—integral at ITC and designer of a litany of iconic logos including the New York Times and Esquire. His typefaces include Avant Garde Gothic, Bauhaus, and of course the eponymous ITC Benguiat repopularized by the Stranger Things logo.
