this is called gaspipe, which is a name they gave to futura poster back in the 1940's. it's a version of futura display that is more stylized. i use it regularly, but you guys don't see it much in my work posted here. i xeroxed it out of an old type book and cut out each letter one by one and pasted it into my mechanical - yes, MECHANICAL. remember i'm an old skool dinosaur hack. i'm not all smart and clever and brilliant like all you computer designer types. i'm still forced to use my hands - like a common laborer!
and AA didn't invent the style i work in. honest. so, i can't possibly rip them off. at least not without REALLY trying harder than this.
i probably have other snide remarks to make concerning this thread, but i'm too tired. i started my first day of my very first real job today. sad, huh?
