Fonts used in this artwork represent the past and present influence of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco area. The rocky shore is rendered in ATF Livermore Script, which was designed in the style of script faces used in advertising in the early 1900s around the time the bridge was first envisioned. The bridge is rendered in Typold Extended, a modern goemetric font designed by Jonathan Hill, which connects the artwork with San Francisco's modern-day presence as ground zero for technology and forward thinking.

The cables in the Golden Gate were constructed by Roebling & Sons, the company that was spawned from cables completed for the Brooklyn Bridge many years earlier. Given this history, the artwork includes the same cable artwork from the Brooklyn Bridge in Type. It also includes a nod to the Colosseo in Type with the same bird in flight plus a buddy.
