Assignment 1 – Typeface in my neighborhood

I found a wide range of Typefaces in my neighborhood and diffident types of fonts styles. This shows the diversity of ideas and creativity in the way vendors choose to get their message across to the public. The styles were catchy and drew my attention immediately. These typefaces were purposely use to woo customers into the various entities and try their products or services.

I have a fresh perspective on how I look at designs and the intricate details of the typefaces used each design to convey a particular message. The designs tell a story about its users, how glamorous, how simple and how stylistic they want  the introduction of their business to be.
