Brisbane typeface

There are many things that make a city more liveable, and designer Troy Leinster’s Brisbane typeface was created to make navigating our city that bit easier. The typeface, which was devised for Troy’s final project of his Master of Design in Type and Media at the Royal Academy of Art in the Netherlands, is a solution for the city’s many different wayfinding types. Hailing from Brisbane, Troy used a sans serif design for simplicity (and to reflect the character of the city) and also created a range of pictograms and orientation devices to complement his informal character forms.
