Cool Thing We Want #378: A Typographic Poster That Celebrates Vancouver Cuisine

We’ve been digging these typographic prints via Delicious City. They spell out the signature food items of over a dozen cities. There are plenty from the USA and some from Europe, but none at all from Canada, so we put our heads together and created one just for kicks, which you can find below…

Yeah, no halibut, oysters, ramen, or maple bacon donuts. We know. What else are we missing?

  1. Thanks for featuring my print series. And the Vancouver-inspired mock-up.

    I’ve actually been thinking about prints for a Canadian city/cities. Send me a final list of foods and I’d be happy to put an actual poster together.

    Seems like they learned everything they know about London from a book published in 1950.
