Mosaic was inspired by hexagon based mosaics that used to adorn storefront entryways in the 20th century.
I was inspired by the craftsmanship of these tiled designs, and wanted to pay homage to them.
To create my typeface, I studied many different images of old mosaics that still remain in cities like New York. By looking at some of the similarities they shared, I put my own spin on them.
