Colosseo – a typographic rendition

Under - Art, Design, Illustration, Inspiration, Typography

Cameron Moll’s rendition of the Roman Coliseum is as engaging as all of his previous typography work has been. Painstakingly handcrafted character by character, the artwork took almost 12 months to finish totaling roughly 250 hours from start to finish.

Characters from the ‘Goudy Trajan’ and ‘Bembo Pro’ typefaces used in the artwork along with glyphs that Cameron recreated based on the work of master Italian calligrapher M. Giovambattista Palatino from around 1550 AD.

But, it is. Good.is is a collaboration of individuals, businesses, and nonprofits pushing the world forward. The site is full of quality material and very well manicured.

GOOD’s mission is to provide content, experiences, and utilities to serve this community.

As a person of visuals, one of my favourite sections on the GOOD is Infographics which is full of interesting statistics and information presented in a very illustrative way that even Joe Quimby can understand.

Where did You Go?

Where did You Go? by C. C. Carpenter II / Typography Asif R Naqvi

Where did You Go?
You were here a minute ago.
Drinking soda and
Laughing out loud
And loving the wine
And making eyes
In love.

There were two of us then.
Now there is one.

We were having so much fun…
I only shut my eyes
For a minute
And you
Slipped
Away.

Poetry: C. C. Carpenter II, Typography: Asif R Naqvi, Type: Garamond
