Charles Street is one of Baltimore’s oldest and most significant streets. The street serves as a corridor to the city— connecting residential, art, historic, and business districts.

The street spans through the center of the city. This feature is directly interpreted in the logo by the wordmark passing through the city icon.
The logo can showcase various landmarks that symbolize the different neighborhoods the street passes through. Each neighborhood is assigned a color to represent its unique personality.

Founders Grotesk is used as the primary typeface for the identity. It’s historic relevance and approachable look make it a perfect match.
