||Cool Joe, a jewelry and accessories
shop at 3 Greyfriars Place, uses large mosaic letters to grab
people's attention. Mosaic tiles can be used effectively to create
lettering, but it is usually on a smaller scale. Instead of the
letters just being traced out by the tiles, here they contain
patterns and movement, adding an extra dimension to the typography.
Have a look too at the colours used - what looks at a distance
to be a fairly uniform blue is actually made up of a blend of
blues, some greens and earthy tones.
