Il Cirmolo – Vintage e modernariato
14 December, 2018

These are some surreptitious pics snapped at Milan’s most interesting vintage shops. We were drawn in by the signs in the window and were hooked by all the great type inside. Unfortunately we weren’t close to buying anything here, but we’d certainly go back if we win the lottery. Note to self: buy some lottery tickets.

There is tons more to see in the shop – it’s certainly worth a visit. But since I didn’t ask about taking photos I wasn’t very thorough or exacting with the clicking pics.

There’s more than just fashion in Milan. There’s also plenty of inspiring type to be found, several great book stores worth checking out, and the food was pretty good too :)

Portofino Walk
24 September, 2018

We took the train from Genoa to Santa Margherita (~45 min) for a little day trip. To get from Santa Margherita to our ultimate destination of Portofino we opted to walk the 6km along the winding seaside rather than take the bus. The 1.5–2 hour trek was really beautiful! There weren’t many letters to show off, but the nature made up for it :) Here are some of the more typographic snaps taken this day.

Nice Signs
25 June, 2018

I’ve been very fortunate to have trips to the south of France this June and 2017’s. Most of the time there is spent on the beach, eating/drinking, hanging out with friends, or taking photos of type. Here are some of the nice signs I found in Nice.

More Type from Antibes
6 June, 2018

Our visits to Antibes this year and last have yielded a wide array of interesting typographic finds. Many images were sorted into more specialized categories (building names, house numbers, metal letters), and these are just a few other miscellaneous pieces of lettering that I was intrigued by.

Antibes Metal Letters

Next time I go to Antibes I want to search out whoever is making these nice metal script house names (especially those in the second half of the gallery). Besides these, there are many more nice metal signs all around the city.

Some Signs from Jerusalem
2 January, 2018

We just got back from a great trip to Israel, so the next several posts will be some images from the trip.

We had the occasion to go thanks to a call Kimya received from the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem. She was invited to be one of 6 Indians for to conduct a week-long workshop for the school’s “India Design Week”. Naturally, her theme was typography – her students first learned the basics of the Devanagari script then made a typographic object with bilingual Hebrew and Devanagari lettering.

I didn’t have much to do with the workshop, so I spent my time working on a new Hebrew typeface and wandering around clicking photos all over the city. Here are just a few shop signs from Jerusalem to get started.
