I was recently backpacking in the North-West region of Croatia, when I stumbled a little town called Osor in the island of Cres.
Osor is not a common touristic destination, and it might seem remarkably unremarkable even for Croatian people. However, I noticed countless embossed signs —with a population of 60, there’s probably more signs that people– with a typographic style I haven’t observed before.
All around the town you can find different signs set in a kind of Uncial type known as Church Slavic Typography in latin alphabet (almost exclusively found in cyrillic alphabet).
“I want to urge you very strongly to travel as much as you can, and to evolve yourself as an internationalist. It's as important a part of your education as a radical as the reading of any book.”

This article is a short three parts essay that illustrates my personal experience travelling as a design student, and my findings on how travelling shapes the mind of a creative professional. The first part refers to my individual background, the second narrates an imaginary case study, and the third part brings thoughts to a conclusion.
