Web: User-generated shots of New York's typographic landscape at NYC Type

Posted by James Cartwright,

Since 2007 NYC Type has offered a huge user-generated resource of imagery to lovers of vintage typography and general New York enthusiasts alike. The site aggregates an image feed comprised of photographs tagged with the #nyctype hashtag providing a constant, live stream of rough and ready typographic content (predominantly old signage, hand-painted lettering and the occasional road sign). This kind of archive is all well and good in theory, but in practise, many are tricky to navigate and poorly designed. NYC Type is neither, and offers a satisfyingly user-friendly experience. The NYC Type team are also planning an expansion later in the year, to include SLR-generated imagery, video content and traditional editorial pieces too. Keep your eyes on these guys, exciting things are afoot!
