Melbourne Types

On a recent visit to Melbourne, designer Gareth Gardner spent time wandering the streets capturing examples of the city's diverse typography in the form of its street signage.

It turns out that Melbourne's much lauded creative culture is evident even to a window shopper – with an amazingly rich and varied collection of messaging that demonstrates its inhabitants' undeniable penchant for experimentation.

From the crumbling antique, to the handmade, the make-shift through to the painfully-considered and polished chrome – there's an admirable skill in knowing how and when your message is hitting the right note.
