3 Quick Type Treatments

nathanjones's picture

Was playing around today instead of getting ready for a pitch.

Came up with a few type treatments, based on exisiting or heavily modified fonts -- not sure what to do with them, maybe tshirts? I am seriously getting tired with clip-art and faux naive illustration art tshirts.

Need more, solid, type treatments on t-shirts in the future, mayhaps?

I dunno.

Do tell me what you think!

Nathan are you pining for the 70s. All that crashing type and ultra tight spacing. I would suggest looking more closely at letter combinations and let some of the type breathe. Type designers design the sides of the letters too.

Thanks Dan

Yeah, the stuff is pretty tight. I really was going for a very tight, tube-socks look. But, there is a question of balance that needs to be addressed.

I think the kerning in the 70s was so tight, partly because of the jeans. There was a subconsious need to keep everything 'packed in' due in part to the tightening in their crotches!

What is dail-a hawk? The others made some kind of cultural sense - Was that just pure wordplay?
