For the Traveling Types

Who says you have to speak a language to experience it? Not a single word is spoken in this breathtaking short film series, which was commissioned by the language-teaching company EF. Barcelona-based designer Albin Holmqvist crafted gorgeous type to reflect the languages of Paris, London, Beijing, and Barcelona, while filmmaker Niklas Johansson’s voyeuristic filmmaking envelops viewers in a world of uncertain adventure.

If you’re an avid traveler or typography geek, definitely check out these videos for endless enchantment.

    Cool! I guess I am very lucky as I’ll be visiting all these cities (but Beijing) in the next 6 months! :D It’s good to have friends all over the place! Oh the advantages of the gypsy life… :D
