ed nacional: tie pography


ed nacional is a graphic design student at parsons, new york. uppercase magazine recently featured a typeface
ed constructed from his personal tie collection dubbed ‘tie-pography’.

a large amount of the collection was acquired from my dad, the rest bought at flea markets, thrift stores with a
few brand new purchases sprinkled throughout. I hope to
extend this project soon, adding alternates, numbers
and ligatures as the collection grows.
