Show Us Your Type, by Garrick Webster

Garrick Webster explores Neue Magazine, which is a new online project inviting illustrators and designers to freestyle on posters dedicated to different cities. 
Anyone with a creative streak is welcome to take part and the best images end up being displayed at the Show us your Type website. The latest incarnation is a series of works about Barcelona. 
“For this edition we really felt Barcelona as a city being reflected through type, especially the influence Gaudi’s work plays in many of the designs,” says Natalie Long, one of the three organisers. “We are really excited about our next city, Berlin.”

Aida Novoa:
Maybe there’s a touch of the Magritte about Aida Novoa’s lines and graphic letter forms. This poster was created this image for the current Neue challenge on Barcelona.

Lisa Rienermann:
Lisa from Berlin shows off her sky typography, based on photos of the sky from the ground in between tall buildings.

Philippe Nicolas:
And the Gaudi influence reigns supreme in this Barcelona poster by Philippe Nicolas, with this mosaic-like graphic of the Sagrada Familia.
