Brooklyn Signs

Nature is transformed by fire and flood, the shifting of the earth's plates, by the pull of the tides. The urban landscape also metamorphoses over time, though often in more subtle ways. In populated environments, the changes are most often the effect of human directives; growth, expansion, renovation, and decay. Living in a rapidly evolving neighborhood in Brooklyn, we have become fascinated particularly by the signs that point to both a tenuously emerging future, as well as the dusty fingerprints of the neglected past.

With a passion for both typography and language, and the way that they are employed to achieve a locale-centric form of mass-communication, we hope to capture a part of this landscape. Please feel welcome to send your observations to bksigns@gmail.com
