Saigonese Urban Typography

Saigon is a mega city with probably 10 million people, the economic center of a socialist republic with a capitalist market economy, formerly French colonialised. Saigon is a city of contrasts, a city with a moving history, a city on the way to a cutting-edge future based on the Western model.

All this can be seen in the cityscape, in the architecture, in the markets, but also in the typography in the urban space. // Project: Documentation of typographical events in urban space, Discoveries and investigations on the topic of „handwriting“ // Task: field trips, photography, social media
