Type in New York City by Michael Surtees

Reading Time: 3 minutes

I have only been to New York once in my life and would love to go back every year for the rest of my life… Michael Surtees is a great man to follow if you want to get a small piece of the New York life. Michael tries to explore people’s daily experiences and observations with design. He started an intersting company Gesture Theory which it seems is now sadly closed. You can also see his rambling at design notes. He runs a wonderful hashtag #walkingtoworktoday where he photographs the city of New York while walking to work (we South Africans only dream of that). He has a keen eye for detail and typography. You can follow him on twitter of instagram. Enjoy.
