chicago type

There are few places in the US that have as many amazing examples of type as Chi-town. I was always struck by the variety ... old school, new school, well designed, badly designed (so much so that it actually looks good). Montrose, Ashland and Western were some of my favorite roads to peruse for good type.

Shawn Hazen is a graphic designer out of Chicago. He has set up a website devoted entirely to the found type of the city. Enjoy.
