In February, I got to spend two weeks venturing in Colombia – Cartagena, Medellin and Salento. It was a fantastic trip with some really fantastic signage. My favorites? The all-white “Gobernacion de Bolivar / Secretaria de Educacion” and the beautiful metal work of “Incantare.” I also saw the most blatant rip-off of a logo I – Read More
Nashville, TN is a hot place for type fans. Obviously, for the eclectic history of Hatch Show Print but also for it’s signs on the strip. My favorite? It has to be Jack’s BBQ and the 3 little pigs running along it. Anything that catches your eye? Tell me on Twitter @hsvandemark.

It lies about 1,600 feet above sea level, and at the top, there’s a great view of the surrounding area including the city of Atlanta in the horizon.
During my travels across South Beach, I was often inspired by the typography. Marriage proposal, classical music and more. Some of my favorites after the jump.
