About Kosmograd Newsfeed
This is the latest version of the Kosmograd Newsfeed, which has been published since 2005 by Martin Gittins.
The main focus of the blog is architecture and the city, viewed through the lens of Soviet Constructivism, and encompassing themes such as branding and city self-image, Suprematism, disurbanism, space travel, edgelands, borders, landscapes, drosscapes, virtual realities, representations.
I am also a sucker for axonometrics, hexagons and space planes.
About Marty here.
London's Kerning, by NB Studio, is a map of London composed entirely of type. The city is rendered as pure typography.
In contrast, another project by Matt Siber, the Untitled Project, removes all the text from images, presenting a city devoid of type.
"The isolation of the text from its original graphic design and accompanying logos, photographs and icons helps to further explore the nature of communication in the urban landscape as a combination of visual and literal signifiers."
