Urban Typography in Saigon

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 and a city that is almost overtaking itself on the way to the future. All this can be seen in the cityscape, in the architecture, in the markets, but also in the typography in the urban space.
