Meta_Physics (San Francisco_My Type of City)

This San Francisco typographic artwork series is based on Erik Spiekermann's famous typeface Meta. My designs offer a glimpse to a world made up of type. Embedded within buildings, landscapes and more ephemeral elements—such as personality and emotion—is a world that can be encoded in the characters of a particular typeface. I've provided an example of this on my website, where I transition myself from Helvetica to Meta (http://omarsandoval.com). 

It is only suiting that these designs be made by one of the first methods of typeface printing: letterpress.
