LX Type è il carattere ufficiale di Lisbona, un font creato attraverso le forme geometriche create dai cavi dei tram della città, uno dei simboli di Lisbona.
The trams are part of Lisbon’s landscape and become an icon of the city. In addition to painting the street yellow, they also scratch the capital’s blue sky with their wires.
From the complex mesh made by them, emerged the idea of creating a typography, whose trace is formed by the wires’s random mating.
Thus, the LX Type becomes Lisbon’s official type.
