For Canadian Thanksgiving, I found mysef in Québec City. I was incredibly inspired by this city: its architecture, its quaint streets, les boulangeries, and its overall character. There was also a lot of eye candy in the form of typography. I walked around and took pictures, and now I’d like to share some of them with you. I’m still pretty unimpressive at identifying typefaces, so if you know what any of the following are feel free to leave comments!
This was snapped while walking around Haute Ville. I saw it on the side of a building and something about it really struck me. Québec City just celebrated its 400-year anniversary; you can feel its history as you wander the streets.
I snapped this poster inside the washroom of a crêperie where we were eating breakfast, so the angle is really awkward. Mes Aïeux is a local folk band, as I later found out. I liked the design of their poster and the contrast between these two typefaces.
Aside: this is my submission for the Designer Daily Group Writing Project. By the time this is published, you may still have a few hours to enter.
