Brooklyn-based artist Pablo Medina is currently trying to raise funds to produce and copyright a typeface he calls Bushwick. Yep, Bushwick. 

"A font inspired by a neighborhood" and the expanse of graffiti, murals and signage found there, it's apparently halfway done, but Medina needs your help to make it a reality. And while we're all for the DIY spirit of what feels like a sort of earnest campaign, there's something that feels a little off about commercializing an entire neighborhood already grappling with huges issues surrounding gentrification -- especially through something like graphic design. Sigh.
