New York Typography

Wow two of the RWC crews favourite things in one short video. Perfect. New Type York is a glimpse at the lost history of signage and typography in NYC. James (I have a huge forehead) Patrick Gibson walks the streets of New York “uncovering the typographic artifacts of New York City”, seeking out all forms of signage that not only convey information but also provide a sense of style. A graphic designer by trade, Gibson’s New Type York has an intimate relationship with fonts, exploring how each pushes a different emotion, revealing the nature of the business whose name it bears while also celebrating what is simply pleasing the eye.
