Following 2010’s Stockholm and 2011’s Copenhagen editions, the designers of Sweden’s jollygoodfellow are back with another beautiful edition of UrbnCal. With each month focused on one specific area of the city, 2012 documents their number study of Helsinki as they explored by bicycle; interested in every day details, each calendar date is a snapshot of the daily typography of numbers found within the Finnish capital. An appendix details the exact location of each photograph is included by month.
From designers Esa and Lisa Tanttu:
The idea from the beginning was to photograph many cities and compare the graphic impression of the numbers plates in different countries. … For us, the number plate is a marriage between architecture and typography, not always happy but always interesting.
Calendars are available for sale here, and be sure to check out the urbncal blog for their lovely daily photo posts.
