Typographic Tattly Tuesday

Typenerds that we are, we just launched four new type-driven Tattlys today: Make Change by Evan Huwa, Trouble Maker by Jim Datz, workisnotajob. by Catharina Bruns and the Deming letraset Tattly by studiomate Mike Fortress.

  1. Those do not look like finished type projects, at all.

  2. @Erik, what’s wrong with them?

  3. I will keep campaigning until Airside’s love letters feature in Typographic Tattly Tuesday. Go on, check it out, i know you want to SwissMiss

  4. I didn’t say there was anything wrong with them. I’m sure people are buying them just because they’re different and cheap.

    “workisnotajob.” probably took all of 8 seconds to create and the letter spacing doesn’t help the message, hence it looks unfinished.

    As a typenerd myself, I would never wear one of these. Primarily because if I want to show the world how crazy I am about type, I’ll get a real tattoo of some gorgeous letter forms. Then I won’t have to explain to people how I really do like type, but I’m just not committed enough to show it for more than a day.

    Some of your other ones are much more clever (Tattone) and I think work at finding your audience. But are these for kids or for adults? I keep trying to figure that one out.
