The Personality of Parisian Neighborhoods Expressed Through Typography

Havas Worlwide Paris, a global design agency, reawakened fond memories of my days living in Paris. They did it by creating this artistic video that captures the character of Parisian neighborhoods/metro stops through typography. The Marais, Latin Quarter, Montmartre, Père Lachaise, Bastille -- they all get a creative nod.

The video was originally created as a New Years Greeting card, and it comes to us via Pret-a-Porter.

    This is great! But I think they are referring to Metro stations, not neighborhoods! Barbes e.g. is a metro station, not a neighborhood!

  • Dan says:

    Then again, they refer to the Latin Quarter and that is not a metro stop — or never was when I lived there….
