Some old, some new, some tattoo typographic influence on this ode to the city I live in. The typographic choices reflect the city a bit, it is an historic city but thereâ€™s also a lot of grungyness here too along with a move towards contemporary spaces. This city is changing and evolving at a rapid pace lately, its an exciting time to live here.
