I was asked to produce an invitation poster based on the subject "Typographic Cities". As it was part of our typography module (1st year) I had decided to concoct a city of typography in an interesting and un-poster like style. Not every poster should be obvious, attention-grabbing, to-the-point and simple, I wanted to do the opposite, something delicate, detailed and intriguing, and more engaging to the audience. That may look like one thing at the first glance, but something completely different at the second. And so I leave this image for you wonderful people to work out. It is aimed at engaging people and for people who love crosswords or mind-games of that sort. As a hint, you can try looking for the title "Typographic Cities" and search the streets for something interesting. As a further note, I'd like to say that the intended place for this would be a tube or a train, as many of my journeys to and fro university consist of me standing squashed like cattle in a tube packed full of people, and with nothing to do but trying to avoid looking at someone intentionally. Engrossed in this poster would be an interesting way to spend that journey.
