A Very Particular Format

I’ve just been preparing ‘poster’ images that Myfonts and some of the other font sites favour- that’s to say landscape artwork in a 2:1 aspect ration.  Not at all a bad format for displaying a typeface in use, but I can’t think of anything else much for which it is used…

Anyway, here are the poster images for the soon to release ‘Herald Banner’….

Wonderfully Inspirational…

It’s remarkable where you can pick up inspirational examples of typography.  He’s the front cover of an issue of the (sadly defunct) ‘Illustrated London News’ which we stumbled across in a local second hand bookshop.

Several interesting thoughts which might contribute their own bit to the evolution of future designs are suggested here. Somehow I doubt the cover of a modern magazine would be so inspirational- and not only because modern publishers wouldn’t fill the front cover with a grid of small advertisements!
