Lebanese Public Lettering

Filed under: Uncategorized — carlsacr @ 2:48 am

This Lebanese public lettering is a memorial of the independence of Lebanon. It is definitely the fingerprint of the static traditional old media design holding the Lebanese corporate identity represented by the cedar and classic Arabic typefaces of that era (mid 20th century). It holds too the architectural finger prints of the French mandate and that is quite obvious when we look to the decoration of the lettering. This memorial is almost the a representative of the current paradox of the identity of Lebanon, in other terms the European Arabic trend.
