Dogs as Typefaces.
I got really excited about this post, but I guess I just don’t get it? Is there any reason behind the dogs chosen to go with the specific typeface? I see that verdana is a bit pixelated, and I get the “Bold Extended” part on Eurostile, but I don’t so much get the rest. I want to though as I love dogs and typography.
Helvetica Neue Bold is a German Shepard?
Don’t tell the Bundesrat ;)
I don’t know but I think some of these are off. The wiener dog one and courier are spot on.
C’mon, the bulldog is obviously Cooper Black. And what, no greyhound?
I would put the Weimaraner to Bodoni…
But hey, my dog is a Helvetica :)
i think they’re all spot on. bodoni–actually each on of them–makes sense to me.
cute! I have a mini daschund so I’m happy to see him on the list :)
Great fun! What’s my Sheltie??
This is a years old project by the three-man studio grafisches büro from Vienna, Austria. Still great though.
They’re reworking their portfolio at the moment. The book “postscript” about middle european type-design of the 90ies was designed by them too. http://www.g-b.at
Very cool! What about cats?
What a fun, what about my bernese moutnain dog or as you know is Berner Sennenhund?
C’mon. Fraktur is a doberman. I thought everybody knew that.
ok I have a yorkie-poo and a shih-poo, so since there is poodle in both I would assume a serif typeface for both…hmmn but which one for yorkie and which for shih-tzu?
Haha, nice :)
fantastic – i love all the things you find!
I don’t get Courier for a Dalmation. Courier is a ubiquitous font that everything defaults to. You see courier everywhere when fonts are missing, it defaults to it. Dalmations aren’t everywhere and ubiquitous.
funny I was doing a logo for my english bulldog and eurostile bold was the exact font I used
Does this mean that a Labradoodle is Comic Sans?
I really don’t get any of these except for Künstler.
and Fraktur is obviously a Shepard or a Rottweiler.
Maybe they did Courier as a Dalmation, because Courier is like newspaper type, and a Dalmation looks like its printed.
No Boston Terrier?
I did this same idea for my final year project in 2008.
Hmm been thinking about this and I reckon slightly improved if The Times was a St Bernard and Helvetica a Labrador. And then a Spaniel for our handwriting.
WHERE’S THE WESTIE?! ;(
spudds mackenzie would be Comic Sans — he just wants to party
Don’t take him seriously, he’ll be offended dude.
e il lupo (del quale porto il cognome) con quale font lo possiamo rappresentare?!?
Can I ask are these for sale anywhere? These make a great set in the studio with our office dogs!
Wondering where/if I can get this as a print.. Love it!
Love this! Thanks for posting!
Hello! I just want to offer you a huge thumbs up for the excellent info you’ve got here on this post.
I am returning to your web site for more soon.
We need a way to vote on which dogs are which fonts. Some of these obvs aren’t resonating very well.
