For many cities, the landscape is an important part of the city’s identity, which is obvious when looking at travel advertising. For many of these cities, there is one specific building that truly defines the landscape and makes it unique. This fact makes the creation of city monograms, that could act as a logo, a great idea.

Yemeni graphic designer Mohamed Al-Jaadaby did the experiment by taking a number of famous cities and wrapping their name in a visual that depicts the most famous building of the city. In some cases, the result could just be used as branding for the city. In other cases, it could require a bit more legibility to be usable in real-life. In either cases, the experiment is fun and you should look at more on the designer’s project page on Behance.
