The Kitchen Sisters’ NPR and podcast series, The Keepers, highlights “stories of activist archivists, rogue librarians, curators, collectors and historians. Keepers of the culture and the cultures and collections they keep. Guardians of history, large and small, protectors of the free flow of information and ideas, eccentric individuals who take it upon themselves to preserve some part of our cultural heritage.”
The identity speaks to the archivist spirit of these “keepers” who often operate in the shadows. A slightly cryptic rune for this unspoken secret club. We also created an easy-to-use graphic system that allowed the Kitchen Sisters to create their own “Keeper of the Day” imagery without any help from us (aside from a short tutorial). Are they doing a great job or what? Brava, Kitchen Sisters!
