The Language of a City
Everywhere you look there are patterns, and design can be found around any corner in Houston. Whether its the smooth, clean lines of a glass skyscraper, awnings of a restaurant, or even a concrete bend in a local park’s trail, inspiration for creativity exists all around us, creating the city’s own language. This installment in AIGA Houston’s Blog explores how type and patterns can be created by manufactured forms.
In this series I will be documenting, deconstructing, and finally reinterpreting Houston’s forms and structures through the creation of type and patterns taken from our gathered information. All in the hopes of encouraging creativity and nurturing a better understanding of our city’s language.– by Monica Yael Garcia
