Interborough by Giang Nguyen

Today's font of choice, Interborough, was created by Siagon-based designer Giang Nguyen. He comments on his website: "The typeface is inspired from the signage system of IRT (Interborough Rapid Transit) New York subway system in the 1900s-1940s. The signage system was later replaced by Helvetica signage system by Massimo Vignelli due to its inconsistency.

"Interborough collects the inconsistent characteristics of those signs and combines with a personal touch to create a new, unique design itself. The sans serif typeface explores the American, compact modular style and try to balance the solid, geometric form with subtle curviness in minor eccentric details. Interborough employs a confident and optimistic look that is found in visual designs of early 20th century."

Interborough is available to purchase from YouWorkForThem, which is offering a 50 per cent discount on all weights until 31 March, 2014.
