royal festival hall

While a was looking for photos in my portfolio to add to my new flickr thing, I found some really old work that I kind of still liked.




It's a display type I made in celebration of the Royal Festival Hall. I made it by burning away a stencil of a classical typeface so that something new emerged. This was a tribute to the way in which the new, modern Southbank centre emerged from the destruction of the Southbank during the second world war. The typeface was called tonic, I believe, as in 'a tonic for the the nation'. I just thought I'd post it since I've been talking about that bit of the world a lot recently
