While we now take crisp-looking typography for granted, it wasn’t always that way. Back in the ’80s, low-res fonts looked dreadful — but fortunately two men changed all that.
Lisbon is beautiful: buildings fronted in colourful tiles, cobbled roads and incredible street art. The Portuguese capital also has hills — lots and lots of steep hills — and a robust tram system that weaves around the highs and lows, complete with a whole tapestry of wires that crisscross above the tracks.
