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.
