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.

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.

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.

Guaranteed Great Goan Glyphs
29 September, 2015

I’ve been to Goa on three occasions, but I have only a few pics of nice lettering found there. The popular vacationy/touristy areas where I usually stay are rather generic and lack any distinctive style or flair (but on the other hand they have numerous bars and the cheapest drinks in India). But on my most recent trip, to finally attend the Design Yatra conference, I spent a few days in the old town area of Panaji/Panjim. Wandering through these streets yielded a fair amound of interesintg lettering and typography.
