Typographic Cities

31 Oct


I love typography. I think that type can make or break a design. It can set a mood and evoke emotions. I love looking at the history of typography. I went to Philadelphia this summer and there were pictures of streets throughout the last hundred years and all that changed was the style of typography. You could identify the decade of the picture by just looking at the style of the type.

Show Us Your Type, is a project for designers to use typography to portray the essence of a city. So far, they have covered New York, Barcelona, Hong Kong and Berlin. Next up is Kingston, Jamaica. Here are some of my favorites.
