London Typographica

Published on October 20, 2011

London Typographica is our studio pet project. Aimed at type and lettering enthusiasts, we are creating a smartphone app and website 'dedicated to mapping the typographic landscape of London'.

The idea is to enable type fans to capture photos of their favourite examples of publicly available type and lettering. Once uploaded from the smartphone app, we will automagically add each photo to the type map of London, showing exactly where it was taken.

An added bonus of the map is all the photos of a specific example will be documented in a chronological order, which means it will be possible to see how type is changing or degrading over time.

To celebrate the launch we collaborated with Graham Bignell and New North Press to produce some limited edition lettterpress posters.
