Despite all the trolling, hate, and cantankerous arguments and trends that break out on Twitter, the micro blogging site can sometimes be a surprising place of discovery.

And proving that is a recent photo challenge posted on Twitter by the London based Design Museum, a curated gallery of new-age, industrial, graphic and architectural design and art.

On Sunday, as part of its regular #FontSunday challenge, the institution invited photographers from across the world to post pictures of fonts found on taxis.

And the results were truly spectacular. In what could be interpreted as a critique of appreciating art only when it is hung in well lit gallery walls, Twitterati from across the world posted eclectic images of taxis with design on them, proving that good art too like beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
