Designer James Victore created this fascinating video tour of typography in Brooklyn and Queens, with a particular focus on signs in Williamsburg. He praises font choices at a few well-known ‘Burg restaurants, critiques the J.Crew mural painted by graffiti artist Greg LaMarche, and talks about why we use Helvetica. The video was made to promote three events for designers and font lovers at Makeshift Society in Brooklyn. The “Working Late” events will happen from 7 to 9 pm on October 2 and 14 and November 11 at 55 Hope Street.
