    I guess its time for redesign, with bigger images :)

  2. Wow, nice collection! I’ve seen these type of things loads in the past, but I’ve never really seen them all together like this.

    Also, Newcastle represent!

  3. Kaitlyn says:

    Love it! Especially the inclusion of Alberta TWICE! Very political of you, too.

  4. Luc says:

  5. Great collection as always!

    Funny, I just created one for my trip photo yesterday and now I have got more inspirations on typography design! Thanks for the great collection!

  8. Mate this is one fantastic collection, that must have taken an age to pull together. I especially like the Oregon image, but in general they are very good. Thank you

  9. I love seeing these typography and image designs! I’d like to say that Ohio was my favorite to support my home State, but they’re all so good in their own way! As always, thanks for sharing, Chris! :)

    Quality post Chris, check out these gems I stumbled on the other day:

    - perhaps you’ve seen it.. more logo I guess but beautiful nonetheless.

  11. Kelly says:

    Beautiful typogrpahy, my only wish is that I could view them without the images and all in plain white, then you can really compare them and appreciate their quality, without the distraction of the images behind – lovely as they are.

    You get a real sense of character from each design, depicting the qualities of the said location. Some of my favourites are Oklamhoma, Michigan, Minesota, Halsnoy, Kentucky and Menorca.

  16. Joe says:

    Hi Chris,
    Great post, as you flick through you can tell that they are applicable to the city, suppose we should remember this when designing for clients…

    Thanks
