Typeface & Type Specimen
Tower Sans is geometric typeface designed for large point size use. Its lean and narrow design gives it an elegant quality that resembles architecture. The letterforms correlate with one another through a unified thickness and a well balanced thin stroke. All counters are squared off to create parallelism and symmetry. To heighten the sharp, geometric style, there is no bracketing and all cures are represented by a strong diagonal stroke.
It is not normal for us to keep track of every little thing we do, but for one week I did. I sourced as much data as I could and compiled it into as many graphs and charts possible.

Relative time either negatively or positively changes an environment. In this case the once thriving capitol of West Virginia, Wheeling, has become forgotten in our new age. Many towns in the Ohio Valley have become overlooked and did not progress to keep up with our changing world. Prosperous industries including iron and steel mills, cigar factories, and glass works once filled the banks of the Ohio River. Through active industrial economy, Wheeling became the richest city per capita in America at the end of the 19th century. This excerpt of photographs comes from from a larger series that serves as a testimony of the life that once belonged here.
