Street Typography: Get A Grip

Hard to see from the street, this address has seen better days. The idea of using door handles as a canvas for address numbers might have been better in theory than in practice; If you're opening the door, hopefully you're at the right place. It was #6 that caught my eye though. Whether the carver made a mistake or the wood chipped off over time, there is something interesting about that really thick curve (or lack thereof). It could almost be inspiration for a new display type based on Helvetica. Typeface: Helvetica Bold.
