Wednesday Inspiration: Street Names

Street names! Such a big part of our daily lives, with their stories, our stories, history, charm and nostalgia. And, yes, typography too. That’s why today we randomly picked a few cities and their most common ‘street’… type. We tried to cover as much of the world as possible in a blog post.

We stare at them every day, but do we ever think about the types or is it all just… geography? Now street name plates take center stage, ahead of graffiti fonts and the like. Let’s stroll!
