About Typographic Decay

“An investigation of what happens to typography, when it’s given a fixed ephemeral existence and allowed to interact with its environment.”

The photos being shown in this group are a collection of individual explorations, and naturally found occurrences in both digital and analogue mediums that attempt to explore this statement.

Typographic Decay is a term coined by Edrea Lita and Marek Okon in 2007 when they both were investigating how physical typography interacts over time within a physical or digital environment. This investigation later became a paper they presented in October of 2007 at Plus+ International Design Conference held in Birmingham, England.

I found two similar groups on Flickr:

You can also find many sites and groups about Ghost Signs in general.
