Looking for Typography in the Surrounding Environment

Although drawing on location and recording the elements I’m drawn to was part of the two location drawing exercises at Brick Lane/Fournier Street and Liverpool Street Station the exercise also involved collecting examples of locally sourced letterforms and typography.

Once you start looking, it’s almost impossible to avoid doing so, however I found that the typographic examples I was most drawn to happened to be the older or more unusual of signs as the letterforms in those have really unique shapes and curves and details.
