I’m sure there’s a few marks on the road (hence all the broom handle moving) but the absolute nonchalance and confidence these guys have to just DRAW HUGE LETTERS is pretty great. With one hand literally behind his back!

This has been going around and is pretty great. Just think how long it would’ve taken to cut out all those letters. This was created by Ben Barrett-Forrest

Thanks to SCSpooner for sending my way this part-typography-part-sci-fi (that’s-a-lot-of-dashes) poster, an eye chart of all letters from well-known sci-fi logos. Can you name them all?

A new (and free!) font based upon the style of lettering seen on Art Deco Cassandre posters. To celebrate, the creators (a design firm called Atip0) recreated a series of his posters (seen above). The video on the site is worth checking out, as is the font!

Over at BoingBoing, there’s a great article about the typeface used throughout the Android 4.0 interface (or “Ice Cream Sandwich” as it’s known), and the controversy surrounding it’s Frankenstein-like nature. Also, I consider typography the unsung art. Something you only notice when it’s wrong, and never when it’s done right. This article talks about this exact process. Check it.

Made something silly and posted it to my Tumblr, goes along with all the other “poster jokes” I’ve put there recently. They’re a fun change of pace from The System. If you like these “poster jokes”, let me know. Think they should go here on the site?
