Leo Burnett has created a type for Lisbon by looking at the sky, and it’s pretty cool.
You can download it at the website.
The trams are part of Lisbon’s landscape and become an icon of the city. In addition to painting the street yellow, they also scratch the capital’s blue sky with their wires.
From the complex mesh made by them, emerged the idea of creating a typography, whose trace is formed by the wires’s random mating.
Thus, the LX Type becomes Lisbon’s official type.
The LX type website has a nice feature that lets you type anything and discover lots of interesting places in Lisbon, where you can get… by tram.
