2 Typo CitiesThursday, August 02, 2007
I am like most art people. Type fascinates me. Especially when its used interestingly. 'Really' by real people. Where its not a science or an art. When it has a job to do, and quickly. We then see it changing , morphing, acquiring strange & funny proportions. Hugely less than ideal. Perrfect!
So I am featuring here signboards, signposts, banners (things from our everyday life) of 2 places - India & ( a part of) the US. In the Indian signboards section, I've used some pictures from this super colourful book on Indian street art called 'Street Graphics India' by Barry Dawson.
Not to miss the illustration on the left :)
And look at these really interesting pics by Arti Sandhu. When she is not taking the amazing photographs which you can see on her Flickr account, she is a Design Lecturer in Wellington, Newzealand :)
Power of positive thinking.
Humour in instruction :)
A private local joke ?
