Alice choose the word EPICENTRE and to set it in Gill Sans. Gill Sans is based on the typeface Johnston which and is used for the London Underground.  The target references British history and 60’s fashion. The typographic treatment highlights the words ‘epic’ and ‘centre’ within ‘epicentre’.  The colours also refer to elements of the London tube map.
