Typographic Mural | Blue Dome District

  • Typographic Mural | Blue Dome District, downtown Tulsa, OK USA
     
    The Blue Dome district is a downtown area in Tulsa, OK that is celebrated for it's artistic expression and is adorned with several murals on the faces of buildings all over. This project was designed a little bit differently however, as it is purely typographic and using a minimal color palette. The black and white typography represents pertinent street names, dates, and events that make up the district, which functions almost as a historical timeline. It is overlaid with the district's very familiar title 'Blue Dome' on top in beveled condensed letterforms, which fill out most of the wall.
