Having studied illustration, by far the most jobless course ever created (No job post graduation but brilliant fun at the time), I know very little about typography.
In fact I widely shunned typography work at our end of year exhibitions. The typography crits were by far the most uninteresting crits in the world.
I just can’t fake enthusiasm for ligature and kerning. I really can’t.
But I’m warming to it, and I wish now, that I knew more. (Unfortunately I still find reading about it as deadly dull as I ever did. Really, kerning, I mean how interesting can that get? Or line spacing for that matter?)
The images below are for work, as part of a iPhone travel guide series of various cities. Originally started out as just pictures with a line or two of information about the place.
That evolved into quotes, and over time the fun of making them interesting to look at took over, and now I spend far too long on these at work.
Monaco, Moscow and Buenos Aires coming soon.
