Letterpool London is a mass public art project, a celebration of the city's urban art and architecture, looked at through its typography - the brands, graffiti, instructions and ideology around us every day. London has a rich, diverse and exciting design heritage, reflected all around us. It's in the signs and signals we take for granted and the unseen art and graffiti of the back streets; the familiar, iconic brands and the unnoticed historical lettering we see if we just look up or down. They are the words that created our city's unique identity.
Letterpool London is open to amateurs and professionals, Londoners and visitors. If you want a few ideas, we've just published the Liverpool version - you can see the finished result here. The competition captured the imagination of photographers across Liverpool, revealing the seen and unseen city in a glorious 204 page book, but we think London's got the potential to be even bigger and better. The project has already won a Gold at the Fresh Creative Awards, a Gold at the Roses Advertising Awards, and attracted national press coverage, including the BBC, METRO, Design Week, The Drum, Computer Arts and .NET Magazine. Now it's London's turn.
We'll be putting the best entries up on the site very soon and the very very best will wind up together in another gorgeous, chunky coffee table book, which we'll be launching alongside an exhibition of the winners' work late 2010.
Closing Date: 20th August 2010
