signage, pakistan - january 2019

In my humble opinion, you can tell a lot about a country by its colours, fonts and graphics.

Pakistan gave me plenty of material to feast my eyes upon. There were no billboards, instead ads were painted directly onto walls. The signs were written in both Urdu and English. And colour, lots of colour, was mandatory. By the end of the trip, I was in some kind of visual paradise.

Everything was such a wonderful mix of the familiar and unfamiliar. I’ll let you judge for yourself…
