Europe in Letters: Locational Typography

cities and typography 2

As a freelance user interface designer, a contributor to Getty images and an ambassador of the Behance network, artist Gokhun Guneyhan has got his hands full. Hailing from the city of Istanbul in Turkey, Guneyhan has traveled around most of Europe while acquiring images of his journeys. After sifting through many of his photos from previous trips, he selected a few to use for his typography series.

Beautiful cities such as Paris, Barcelona, Bordeaux and Brussels were chosen. Guneyhan would pick his particular photo and then juxtapose hip typographical elements on top to label that city or location. Each photo is adorned with a different style that really brings out the personality of the city/country. Check out more of his work on Behance, or follow his Tumblr.
