The 10 commandments of typography

I have to make this entry in english so that my now new spanish and south american clients can understand what people like me mean with "that should not be done that way"! Often enough i think that they look at me and think stuff like "Who's that motherfuckt to tell me that my business card sucks!?" Well, i am THAT motherfuckter enough to do so because after more than 20 years i am far from perfect but close to good. And then i tell my clients to better not ask me where THEY are standing.

So here are the 10 commandments done by designmanticthat EVERY designer should now about!

Wie geil! Auf der Seite kann man einfach drauf lostippen und prompt sucht ein script nach den passenden instagram fotos die als Schriftersatz herhalten. Wunderschön!

Will letter for lunch!

Lauren Hom ist designerin, Illustratorin und Font Liebhaberin. Ueber die Seite bietet sich hand gemalte Tafeln gegen ein Mahl. Super Idee wie ich finde, aber auch nur in big cities einsetzbar wo die Auswahl an Mittagstischen udn Dinner Spezialitäten vorhanden ist. Hier in Maspalomas würden die Restaurant Besitzer einen auslachen und sagen das sie das doch auch für billiger im Copyshop bekommen. Nichtsnutzige Kunstbanausen sind das. Support Lauren! Support Typo!
