Urban Typography by andrewackroyd Urban Typography by andrewackroyd
Part 2 to my Urban Typography project in the first year of my Graphic Design degree.

The brief was to create a poster using only typography using movement of the urban city. It took me a long time settle on a colour scheme that really worked. I also decided against the idea of using text on horizontal and vertical axis, instead using rotations of 45 degrees for the layout.

Helvetica Neue has to be the most amazing font created. I know it when I see it.

I am currently doing a degree in Graphic Design too. (although I have no current work up) I had typed in 'Urban typography' into google as this is my next assignment. :) We had to do one earlier in the year for Visual Communication, but instead of designing a poster, we had to design a book. I must say it was not easy. This is a great peace though. I love your choice of colours too. xxx

I get a lot of hits on this piece of work, it must feature as a project in most college and university projects. Thanks for the kind words :)!

I think it must too. :D
We were only allowed to use text in ours too, and in the another just images. Sorry for the late reply. xxx

No prob! i was actually researching typography art because I have this assignment in my adv graphics class where i have to use typography to represent a product or event. I found it really cool how you depicted a sense of movement with only letters! great job!

Saw this on Smashing Magazine's site today. This is really fantastic stuff! Inspiring use of type here. And this is from your first year? Damn, son. What school teaches you stuff like this?

Sure thing. I looked back, and it's not actually in smashing, it was on another site. I just have them all together on google reader (oops). So yeah, here's the link to it http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2009/09/30-typography-posters-that-youve-probably-never-seen-before/. It's the third one down.
