Isotype city

Isotype city

Limited edition book I made for an university project. For this project I was researching existing sign systems and my idea was to experiment with them in order to change the meainings of the signs in different combinations. That intention led me to the idea of using isotype graphics to make social commentaries about existing problems in big cities. I think that Isotype is the perfect mediom to comment on urban problems since it set the beginning of today's pictograms as we know them, so it is somehow part of the cityscape.
