New York-based designer and letterer Nick Misani presents his latest project, Fauxsaics. Fauxsaics are in turn digitally crafted through a similar process used for actual mosaic tiling.

Here, the graphics are constrained to the same limitations and techniques that determine the composition of their physical counterparts.

“For a long time, I’ve been obsessed with lettering, interior design, and decorative arts,” Misani stated. “So mosaics — as an intersection between these three passions — have always been fascinating to me.”

For this particular project, the digital typographic mosaics celebrate the artist’s travels throughout the world, as the letters and color palettes commemorate each given location.
