I haven’t been to Melbourne for years (seven if you ask) so when the chance came for a brief weekend visit there was no argument. When visiting somewhere new my eye is almost instantly tuned in to spotting interesting lettering/signage/typography. Here are a few images, perhaps the most interesting being the typography on the side of the tram.
But at Federation Square there was this carved (by machine clearly) into sandstone. I don’t think it very effective – or legible – but it’s an effort.
Then there are some nice examples of vintage lettering on public buildings.
And a piece bit of store lettering in stainless.
Finally, on the way home, how could I not resist this signage outside the men’s toilets.
