Graphic Design In the Wild – Day 11: EPCOT

EPCOT opened October 1, 1982. The Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow was Walt’s hope for the future of urban design. Alas Walt’s true urban design vision wasn’t realized, but the park remains a graphic design menagerie.

With every step you’re surrounded by typography, logos, icons, poster designs, and signage.

Again, graphic design plays an important role in creating imaginary worlds. EPCOT is no different. The stronger the graphic design, the more realistic the imaginary world around you feels.

BONUS NOTE: The main EPCOT font is called “World Bold”. It’s designer is Deborah Lord. She also designed all of the graphics for the Universe of Energy pavilion.
