A Westside Story
What’s the 411?
Westside is a neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri. All contained within just a few blocks, it is packed with unique stores and restaurants. The area is alive with design and typography details everywhere you look, if you’re paying attention.

What did I do?
I designed, photographed, and wrote this book to encourage others to be more cognizant of the beautiful typography that can be found street-side in any neighborhood or city. These subjects all have different uses, but if examined closely, present beautiful typographic details. My goal was to inspire the reader to appreciate and acknowledge good design around them, whether it be trampled trash or home address signs. It’s about being more present in the world around us, whether that is Westside or beyond.
beam me up, scotty!
