Batman Typed Up

I came across this t-shirt design today while I was shopping. This was a nice iconic image of Batman but with the type design  really made it stand out as being fresh and new. You couldn’t really notice the text but you got closer to look at it – the text started to become clearer. I really like how the variation of text size is still clear to read and the image of Batman of only being two color complements the gray t-shirt.

& Pizza

Saw this in Ronald Reagan Airport and it stood out on the line up restaurants. I really like the simple use of the ampersand and it being black and white. & is a simple quick read. With the hustle of being in an airport, you don’t always have time to stop and read a sign. There is consistency; the photos in the restaurant and the pizza boxes are black and white. Overall the ideas and concept are simple and focus on the customer  & pizza.

Use black to your advantage

I got this swim suit as a gift and like how the beachy print is not so expected. There is that floral print that is overly done and gets boring. The black over lay is a different use of creating print. The blocky typography is simple and  allow you to make out the letters at a glance. The use of color is fresh and vibrant.

Short and simple

I was beer tasting and this happens to be the coasters that was on the bar. It was simple and eye catching. Some coasters have great designs but you tend to leave it behind just liking it. But this one you want to take home with you to put on your coffee table, for a great conversation starter.

Throw back to vintage newspapers

This wine label really stood out – I got a newspaper feel. The stacked narrow strip reminds me a newspaper column. I like how the label really occupies more of the bottle than most labels. The stacked text is clean and varied in weight which allows the eye to adjust as you read line by line. The simple black and white label keeps it clean and polished.

Keep the details simple

I passed this store over weekend and this logo design caught my eye. Along the line up stores this detailed logo really seemed heavy. The heavy display font and the logo it seemed to hold its ground on the awning. It does give the old victorian feel of books.

I did stop in and got a better feel for it. The store is an all natural tea, soap and wiccan store. Not your typical magic store, it is all on the natural  healing elements. With the Name Rumpelstiltskin there are  the ties to the time period of this tale, the fade of wicca and the strong dependency on using herbs for healing this store brand it very accurate for its history and its purpose.

Keep it unique

When I saw this bottle it really made an impression and stood out from the shelf. Honestly it was great to see a strong concept speak louder than its design. This shows more character and personality than any font in my font book. I really like the message and how personalized the story is.
