The Hoxton Angel typeface is the result of a walking workshop organised with Tower Block Books and Moments Like This.
Twenty-four participants captured, shared and traced the letterforms they could spot in buildings around them during a walk from Hoxton to Angel, walking their way across estates, victorian, georgian and vernacular architecture and new developments.
The letterforms were then shared, selected and retraced, resulting in a limited-edition poster printed on a risograph.
Typeface, poster design, risograph: Amandine Alessandra
