It's so easy to end up with this
I'd just like to point out that I am not responsible for this :-)
Not as many photos as I thought, I'm afraid.
This (from 1960)
I think we've probably had some of these on the Type ID board
Facsimile (full size, wall painting) of the gates from Fletcher's home
And a very cool collage of objects from a junk hoard
* Gill Sans Bold c.190% reverse squoosh™
** Copperplate Bold .c 32% squooshed™
Rather disappointed to see that this
There was also a London Underground display with some some posters, an upholstery swatch and a repro platform seat with integral enamelled roundel. And a small case with some Gill and Monotype material.
The Alan Fletcher exhibition downstairs was (to my mind, and my wife agrees with me) much better.
I've finally got around to doing it, some of the discussion in this type IDthread forced me to photograph these two shopfronts just round the corner from my home.
I'm not entirely sure how appropriate Helvetica Condensed is for a London street nameplate from '66 either.
This is fun…
There are some things that you just shouldn't do, even if you can.
Looking for the logo at www.britvic.com I found several PDFs with this same vector rendering.
I hope the C is meant to look like a piece of fruit, I can't think of any other reason why it should be that shape.
I've been wondering for some time what sort of thing to use this facility for.
It occurred to me that I collect various "found type" images and dodgy logos all the time, so that'll be my theme… mostly.
