Our Lady of Hope Cemetery, Goa
8 October, 2015

This quaint little cemetery was found in Goa’s Candolim area. Most of the names were hand painted with ornamented letters, but some appear to have been homemade. There were more traditional stone carved examples around the paremeter that also contained some interesting letterforms.

TypoPolo Exhibition
22 June, 2014

“TypoPolo” is a notion which describes an aesthetic phenomenon, namely, the amateur designs of advertisements, signboards or informative inscriptions made for small businesses and crafts, which came into being in the Polish public sphere of the 1990s.

TypoPolo @ the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw

I first heard of this special exhibition at Typo Berlin last month from the Hakabo talk. Not yet having been to Poland, it was the perfect excuse to finally go because of it’s concrete (and time-sensitive) typographic theme. The exhibition is still up for another week (I saw it on what was to be the last day, but then it was extended two weeks)(April 29 – June 29, 2014), so maybe you can hurry to Warsaw to catch it!

A few days later, I happened to meet a man in Brno, Czech while we were in a line to get a beer… I mentioned that I was just in Warsaw, and that I mainly went just to see this show (and the Neon Museum)… and that I really enjoyed it. He then introduced himself as Rene Wawrzkiewicz, the curator of TypoPolo! He was super excited to hear someone went all the way there just for the show :) He also apologized that there weren’t English translations of the text (due to the budget of course). But then shared the great news that TypoPolo will travel to Wrocław later this year, and they are planning a bi-lingual book to also be published. I’m very much looking forward to that!

Hand Painted Signs of Mykonos
23 September, 2012

Mykonos: tourist hell. Could be a quaint little place in theory; it probably used to be… I can’t not recommend this as an interesting typographic destination for you hardcore letter-tourists. However, it is almost rescued by some distinctive hand painted signs.

“Hot” Typography Trends
3 June, 2009

The newest type craze:

The hot new trend in typography is not embedding – no, it’s not @font-face or even Typekit. It is printed neither offset nor digitally. Best of all, it is possibly the greenest form of design! Forget about the silly, over-hyped Eco Font, this typography needs no paper or toner whatsoever; it doesn’t even use fonts. It only requires a pen (or some paint) and a volunteer! This hot typographic trend simply uses the human body as the canvas. Not exactly a new concept, but some recent developments are still worth sharing (i.e. not innovative, but nice to look at).
