We have great news to share: NYC TYPE 2.0 has launched!

Yesterday Daniel and I released the latest version of This is just the beginning, but we are quite happy with the outcome. The design's the reception has been positive, but most importantly the content coming in has been incredible. Over 110 new images have been contributed by viewers since launch!

So, going forward, NYC TYPE is officially home to a steady stream of typographic content from the streets of New York. Visit the site daily for a peek into the city as seen through the eyes of New Yorkers who love letterforms.

That said, don't forget to contribute your own photos. For now all you need is an Instagram account. Simply tag your photos with the #NYCTYPE hashtag and check the site to see them on view in the gallery.
