As designers we seem to have lost our courage, churning out identical brand ‘solutions’, posting Dribbble shots of the same regurgitated formula. Perhaps it’s the lack of control on the web. Perhaps it’s the increasing need for an international outlook, and the consequential safety offered by Helvetica. Perhaps it’s the diminishing respect designers receive from clients whose nephew/cousin/neighbour/husband thinks that Arial is the best font for her new site. If you’re looking for inspiration, to escape the sterility of contemporary design, or are just looking to bathe your eyes in the effortless cool of yesteryear, check out the Tumblr blob typehunting.com by Jonathan Lawrence. A collection of old school lettering, logos and signs, it’s the perfect way to while away a lunch hour.
