MUMBAI

Typography

This printed work is a comprehensive text regarding the city of Mumbai, illustrating themes of both the East and the West in its design. The font “Jaipur”, chosen for header text and decorative letters, was inspired by traditional Indian script. The font “Adobe Devanagari” was chosen for the body text, as this font was created to be used for business documents written in both English and Hindi. The long, narrow columns containing body text are inspired by the city’s skyscrapers, contrasting the more elaborate background letters portraying the city’s beauty, diversity, culture, and tradition.
