(Bristol Urban Lettering. Image by Grazia Campanella)
Yesterday I handed in my research essay. It includes a photographic documentation about my typographic enquiry, started few months ago, which purpose was to better know the city of Bristol and its spirit.
My learning objectives were:
- Explore the typographic landscape, in order to understand how it contributed to the construction and preservation of the sense of place
- Investigate the role of urban lettering as a form of multiculturalism or resistance against the cultural homogenisation
This research as increased my interest for urban typography; for this reason I intend to continue my urban enquiry !
