Amble

'Amble' is a self-initiated project exploring the identity of the Northumberland seaside town through my family connections to the area.

The proximity of my family members in Amble has hugely influenced my view of the area. I looked at the routes between my family's houses, and the shapes of the roads along these routes. I then abstracted and combined these road shapes into the letterforms for this display typeface.

I interviewed members of my family on their experiences living in and visiting Amble, and produced this publication from my Grandad's words.
