The European Man

I saw Erik Spiekermann giving a lecture recently in which he described the type design in iOS7 as "distinctly British". That idea stayed with me. I've never imagined UI design could be regionally distinctive.

Also I've been considering (due to my work in Scandinavia and North America) the notion of visual metaphors for different regions.

Anyways these thoughts combined in to this quick sketch, which I pulled together.
