We travel, and always look at the street typography that defines the character of every city and new urban environment we experience. I enjoyed documenting the street graphics and typography in my latest trip across Panama, and so did Hilda in her travel in Venezuela. A quick preview shown in the images below, giving a taste of the rich typography in central and Latin America.

  1. Hi Tarek.
    Thank you for the inspirational site. As an educator in Graphic Design, you have given me so many wonderful ideas for projects that involve photography and that create an awareness of type at the same time.

  2. I just wanted to thank you very much for this ensightful article. I have already bookmarked your site, when I have more free time I am going to have to do some further research. Well back to my dreaming of Panama or back to the books – I wonder which one is going to win out. 🙂
