“On the streets you look at girls – I look at type!” German typographer Hannes von Döhren has said. Folks working in graphic design will feel this, not only on the streets, but everywhere they go.

There are fonts that define a city, and there are signages that define local vibe

One day I realize can’t help looking at shop signages when driving along downtown. Not only hand lettered logos caught my attention, but also the logos nicely crafted by customizing typefaces. So I gave it a try, why not taking photos for my design inspiration and create some kind of record of my cities signages at the time? The exploration and enjoyment never end, but I invite you to my neighborhood signages collection as I’m adding more and more over time 🙂
