The Hunt for Good Type
Old subway tile typography: modern designers would never let that bad kerning fly. But there is something truly beautiful about it.
Decaying window vinyl: This distressed look is something that designers often try to replicate onscreen. But it’s never quite the same as the real thing.
The wonky alignment of this sign actually quite charming. It was clearly made my someone who isn’t a designer but needed to get their message across.
The underdesigned signage in this Laundromat window is straightforward in communication: pure type, no frills. You don’t really see anything like this in the professional design community.
I love the energy of this playful typography. The alternating baselines and mixing of the different type styles give it a warm and welcoming feeling.
This unintentional chopped up type is majorly epic — and happened by pure chance because of the surface the typography is painted on.
