These Designers Want to Create Custom Typefaces For Every City in the World

Dutch graphic designer Jarrik Muller and his cohorts have designed custom fonts inspired by nine different cities so far, so out of the 2 million or so that exist in the world, they still have a ways to go. But it's a start, and the 0.0000045 percent completed project is already attracting some attention. Muller was first inspired to create a typeface based on the city of Amsterdam in 2013, and since then has enlisted eight other designers to choose a city—some chose their own, some didn't—and try to translate its character into numbers and letters. On his website, you can see the existing fonts and read the explanation for the look of each one.
