Kanye West's new video for "All of the Lights' seems to be a copy of the film titles for "Enter The Void" (posted here). The typographic treatment starts at the 1:10 mark, then again at the 4:30 mark. Inspiration or imitation?
After admiring the signs and lettering on my walks to work, I wanted to document what I had found. We often discuss the cultural impact of architecture and urban spaces but rarely the words and letters found in these spaces. So here is villatype, a visual record and discussion of type and lettering found in the public domain. I hope you will all take part by adding to the dialogue and posting your own finds.
Call for submissions
villatype is always searching for found type and lettering in any public space. You can send me images along with your name, city, street and date. Or, even better, become a contributor and post them yourself by emailing me your contact info and I will add you as a contributor.
