In the new city hall of Tilburg the windows of five conference rooms were decorated with birds with specific dialect names. The texts were typeset in TilburgsAns, a typeface based on the idiosyncratic, raw, experimental, humorous and surprising character of this city. TilburgsAns is distributed for free and aimed to connect the Tilburg inhabitants to the city and each other.
The birds were drawn in the same iconic style as the pictograms that are part of the typeface. They are a symbol for the different ‘voices’ of the city dwellers.
