I went to the Fontwalk the other day. Cool beans! I was wishing a bit more of hard history facts, but other than that the walk is something I can definitely recommend. Go, enjoy!
Cities are full of visual stories. Signs and symbols, letters and numbers – their main purpose is functional, to give information. What if we looked at them from another angle: as something that, in addition to being informative, can be aesthetically pleasing or tell an interesting story?
Fontwalk is an independently taken stroll up and down the streets of Kamppi, pointing out details and exploring the visual role of graphic design in the streetscape. The route takes approximately 45 minutes to walk and is based on a map distributed free of charge at Napa Gallery. Thirty-one destinations illustrate the past and present of typography and graphic design, and also offer a glimpse of the micro history of the area.
The map is designed by graphic designer Camilla Pentti together with Napa Gallery and will be available at Napa Gallery from April 26, until the edition runs out.
With Fontwalk Napa Gallery wishes…
