Melbourne city has a new welcome for their visitors in a very typographically appropriate manner. Stephen Banham, Australian typographer and writer was the man behind this city landmark, a total of 2.4 tonnes of type that are installed on the Frankston railway station in Melbourne. An adequate greeting for all the visitors coming to the shore in the form of a six meters long and red coated galvanized steel phrase that also doubles as public seating.
This is a perfect example of how design can make a difference in a city by the means of overtaking the public spaces. "Good" design takes over the streets then, it's around everyone and becomes part of the spirit of the city.
