Design that inspires us is always worth sharing. Not always a startup or dedicated to building a product, but an idea that displays delightful imagery, thought provoking graphics, or curates the way art impacts our daily lives is always worth noting.
NYC Type is the collection developed by Matthew Anderson and Daniel Hunninghake concerned with showcasing the role typography plays in the life of New York City. Around since 2007, we just stumbled on this community-showcased website that goes beyond tailoring images of New York typography, but gives us a glimpse of various voices and perspectives to piece together a story and history of an incredibly diverse city.
The website states “what you see now is the first iteration in an ongoing effort to build a platform for open, multi-dimensional online storytelling — it is our attempt to re-envision what storytelling in the 21st century can be: something accessible, educational, and fun.”
Images found on the site are grabbed from the Instagram hashtag of #nyctype, but will eventually include geo-tagged photos, editorial shots, high-resolution imagery and even video. Take a dive into New York City with a study on typography at NYC Type .
