San Francisco in Typography
We’re back! So, how’ve you been? We’ve been fabulous thanks for asking! We’re back in the studio after a wonderful honeymoon and it’s all hands at the ready because there’s so much going on and lots to do. Which is why it’s taken a couple of weeks to get around to writing this post. Work always gets in the way of the fun stuff don’t you find? Although we shouldn’t complain too much because we have just come back from two weeks of fun (in epic proportions) in Las Vegas and San Francisco and we miss it already. As most people do, we took plenty of photographs to remind us of our wonderful time but in the midst of the poolside shots, instagrams of our food and some we can’t quite remember taking (that would be Vegas) we’ve manage to snap some gorgeous lettering work along the way that caught our eyes. When I say caught our eye I mean myself pointing frantically at shop windows and signs and making people think I’m pointing at them, while @waviograves, who is in charge of the camera points and shoots in the direction of my shouts. Fun trip, he enjoyed it really!
We spent 5 nights in Vegas and then travelled to San Francisco for another 5 nights which is where we started noticing the beautiful typography everywhere. So we thought, why not record our San Francisco visit through the typography we discover. Such an amazing city and you couldn’t walk a few steps without seeing a retro script sign or an elegant hotel logo that made us want to get the camera out. We really were spoilt for choice. We walked absolutely everywhere, which was the best way to see the city in our opinion. Discovering little nooks and cranny’s, tiny parks and little craft shops that tour buses and trams won’t take you past. We even managed to get a bit lost and ended up on the wrong side of town (if you know what I mean) but hey, that was an experience in itself.
So, this collection of photographs were collected all over San Francisco. From the bright lights and saxophone street musicians of Union Square, to the elegant bars and restaurants of Lombard Street, the amazing fish restaurants and quirky shops of Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39, to the hippy centre of Haight-Ashbury, to Chinatown and our favorite little Italian Restaurant in Little Italy. It’s all here and we hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we enjoyed finding them..
We’ll be in touch soon with a new look as we’re currently updating our website!
See you soon!
