In its ubiquity, type becomes invisible. Daily, we inhale characters as we do air. From billboards, emails, logos and newspapers. On business cards, toilet doors, t-shirts and milk cartons. Times New Roman, 黑体, Arial, Courier.    It would be impossible to picture a world without type. But how often do we stop and see what we’re reading, or notice how the expression of language is altered by placement and composition? Do we perceive the absence of a serif, or observe the critical space between an a and a b?    Take a closer look.          Urban Typography  is an open call to collect letters concealed in the shape of real objects, aiming to identify the importance of font design, through the appreciation of their presence in our routines.  Once you start, there is no stopping, soon to realize that letters are all around us.
