The name Urbantyper is the combination of the word ‘urban’ and ‘typewriter’ that represent our activities – traveling and writing. We love to travel and to meet creators from different background. We appreciate when the local culture meets someone’s personality and creates a unique synergy.
We classify our interview by cities and words. In that manner, different categories of people could be classified by the same theme. For example, with the word ‘plant’, we could interview artiste, craftsmen, scientist or cook. Their professions are all different, but could be also connected by the word ‘plant’ – instead of classifying separately in ‘art’, ‘science’ or ‘culture’. We would like to create a kind of ‘dictionary’ and that is the reason why we gave the subtitle ‘poetic urban dictionary’.
