TYPO London 2011 Places

Antony Harrington

Antony is one of the founding partners of OPX. As digital director, he acts as a 'conduit' between clients' needs, design and technology, and the end user experience.

OPX is a branding and design studio, working for a diverse range of clients, always applying the same level of strategic and creative thinking.

With a background in print design, his 'road to Damascus' moment came when discussing airport signage with a designer friend 'It's not so much what it looks like, it's where you put it that's important'. Usability had just been invented.

Antony will be introducing 'London Typographica', a website and app 'dedicated to mapping the typographic landscape of London'. An absolute must for all type-enthusiasts living in, or visiting London.

Introducing London Typographica
Based in Shoreditch, London, the OPX studio is surrounded by a rich mix of urban and public typography, but there is no single place to document it all.

London Typographica aims to enable type-enthusiasts to photograph and give context to public type as they find it, creating the typographic landscape of London.

Today we will be showcasing London Typographica, and inviting TYPO London to participate in the project.
