Interesting article (to type-nerds like myself).
I'm just wondering what Chantry will have to say.
(If he's not still banned from that site).
Design Observer: writings about design & culture
nice cluster of unemployed 'designers' with way too much time on their hands right there..ayup.
I read that book 'The elements of typographic style'. it gave me a greater respect for people who spaz out about type, but at the same time I wanted to put a gun to my head by the time I had finished it. I did learn quite a bit from it though so it was worth the investment of time.
I love futura i use it all the time. I think I will use it on 2 new products this week.
lolzer........................I love being the client AND the designer...IM ALWAYS RIGHT!
har har...*belch* fart.......(sniff)
Being a type nerd... I appreciate when type has meaning (be it history or otherwise). But, let's face it, having a meaning behind the type, other then readability, is really just to please yourself, and other desgners. Clients rarely give a shit, and don't want to sit and listen to you explain the history behind Baskerville, or Goudy, or Futura, or Universe...........
Or maybe I've just worked at a sign shop too long?
