As we wandered through the narrow streets of Venice, Italy, I couldn’t help but notice all the different store signs. Many of them had such quintessential Italian style with the use of typography. The stylized scripts, clean, modern fonts and even the traditional serif fonts all made me think of classic Italian graphic design.

  1. I find it really interesting that it’s possible to actually make letters look Italian. Typography is such a fascinating art-form.

      Hi Katie! It is pretty crazy that a typeface can look like a location– but it really is true!! I love being on the hunt for those fonts. Thanks for reading! 🙂

    Hello! What is the font used underneath each individual typeface in your poster? Thank you!

      Hi Alexander – The font I used under each “italian style” typeface is called MostraOne. It’s a nice clean sans-serif font!
