New Typeface for Roadways

The ‘overglow’ of the bright white letters on the darker reflective background of traffic signs makes it hard to read the signs. Thus a clearer one was created. Clearview Typeface. From the NYT.

New Detroit Lions Custom Type

Paul over at UniWatch HATES the new Detroit Lions unis. I, however, think they are a HUGE improvement from the previous design. I appreciate the fact that they didn't completely overhaul the design, but gave it a subtle, contemporary look.

Note the new wordmark with custom details to complement the "fierce" Lion logo.

This customization applies to the numeral typography, as well. Check out the swoopes in the corners of the numbers.

C'mon Paul. MUCH better than last year's hideocity.

How the typeface Sand ruined the most amazing video in months

Click here for the truly amazing video. (Take your Dramamine®)

The typeface "Hawaiian Starlight" in Sand makes me want to hurl more than the spinning of the stars.

Typography In Venice

Kudos for Sam for finding this awesome poster on the streets of Venice, CA. You can really tell a lot about a person by the handwriting (and, of course the misspellings and punctuation).
