Type City Poster Project: Great Lake Cities

Geographic Designer is back with a third poster project to follow up the 50 States Design Project and Provincial Patterns Project. It’s called the Type City Poster Project, a design initiative and branding exercise undertaken by Joshua Best. For each city, a unique typeface is chosen to match the city’s personality. In addition to the face and layout, three Pantone colors are selected to represent the city’s attributes. Here’s the first installment: 12 posters of cities in the Great Lakes Region.
