Took a trip in March across the big pond to Europe. It was a whirlwind sightseeing extravaganza with stops in London, Dublin, Paris, Florence and Rome. Whilst everyone is taking selfies or snapping shots of historic landmarks and whatnot, I was getting strange looks for snapping shots of subway billboards, type on manhole covers, logos on menus, graffiti and the like. My graphic design peers understand, but everyone else, not so much. Don’t get me wrong, I’m in a bunch of selfies and have a plethora of typical tourist pics, too. But you’ve seen those before. So, instead, take a tour of Europe through the lens of this graphic designer.
Some of the photos are clickable for more information. Feel free to comment, berate or share.
Useless “European” trivia for you – The “W” of Clark W. Griswold stands for Wilhelm.
