Los Angeles is known as the city of angels, but to me it’s a city of vibrant life. It’s packed full of green plants, bustling cars and innumerable opportunities to snap photos. Maybe it’s just that I don’t live there, but even the city streets from the view of my car seem inspiring.
I’m starting a new entry in my observations book called the California Typography Phenomenon. How did California get so many cities with awesome signs? From San Diego to Oceanside, from Los Angeles to San Francisco, each city has its own display of unique and beautiful typographic pieces. San Francisco has old marquee signs and elegant scripts hanging over buildings (I have a whole photo album dedicated to it). Los Angeles has sans serif fonts littered among beautiful colors and on the tops of hotels through Hollywood. Oceanside has neatly painted trash cans on the beach and hand-drawn chalkboards outside the coffee shops and bars. San Diego has neatly printed signage sitting on top of all the old brick buildings in downtown.
Don’t believe me? Well I’ll show you. Sometime soon.
My Los Angeles adventures look more elaborate than they were. Many of you know that most of my traveling is following my boyfriend around and working full-time from hotel rooms as I do so. I did sneak out at least once a day though to go visit friends or nom all of the local vegan cuisine. There’s a lot of it.
