Quick: what are the first three things that come to your head when you think of Norway? Fjords was in there, right? Right. In Kirill Zaytsev’s clever series Flagsters, which we spotted over at My Modern Met, the Moscow-based graphic designer plays with typography to represent the flags of the world’s countries with their written-out cultural stereotypes. Most of them are pretty spot on — especially Germany’s, which made us laugh — but the result is also just quite nice to look at. Click through to check out Flagsters, and then head here to see more of Zaytsev’s work.
