DIN for Typographic City Posters
Show how much you love your city with an Ork Poster, designed by Jenny Beorkrem. With the help of DIN (1451 Engschrift) these clever prints sidestep traditional maps and bring forth top-notch typographic design, simplicity, and a modern edge. Out with small type and in with DIN’s strong letter forms and bold personality.
Careful thought has been put into each of these designs. Beorkrem playfully crams and stacks characters of all shapes and sizes into geographic neighborhoods to portray these bustling cities. The San Francisco map can even be made “green” with recycled papers and soy-based inks. Ork posters are one of a kind and you won’t find these hiding in a glove compartment.
Priced between $22-$27, the posters and screen prints make a great holiday gift. They are one of the more affordable pieces of wall art available, all while being very unique and eco-friendly.
If you like DIN (1451 Engschrift), we recommend you take a look at FF DIN. 1451 Engschrift is a pretty faithful digitization of the original DIN fonts. However, FF DIN is a bit more regularized for modern design, with more weights and widths. FF DIN is also a much larger collection.
The FontFeed is a daily dispatch of recommended fonts, typography techniques, and inspirational examples of digital type at work in the real world. Eat up.
