Urban Interior

Urban Interior is a research group originating from RMIT University and interested in the relationship between people and the urban condition. In their words "Urban Interior is a book located at the threshold between the interior, habitually conceived as the private realm, and the urban, or what is generally recognised to be the public realm".

For this book we played out the extent of the idiosyncrasy of Akzidenz Grotesk as a type family to nod to the different research interests of a group of design academics who have established a shared research group, yet who are pursuing those research parameters in individual ways. This was followed up by using nine different 'standard' serif types for the text of each of the nine chapters.
