Type Faces For Places

Graphic DesignTypography
College Set Brief

This brief was self set and was my final major project for the UAL Art Foundation course. The over arching concept was too create a set of three typefaces each inspired by a location; New York, Bath and Bristol. The inspiration more particularly will derive from the unique architecture from each location. 
My solution were these three typographic posters, featuring the type faces I had designed. The Bristol font was inspired by the large cranes used on the harbour side, each letter is mimicking the metal frame work seen on the cranes. The bath font takes inspiration from the cities roman heritage, exploring the various pillars that can be seen in the architecture. Finally the New York type face is based on the art deco styling that is so frequent throughout the city.
