For the Love of Type.

My father is a graphic artist. He designs logos, makes beautiful signage and taught himself FlexiSign and Adobe Illustrator, slowly,  page by page in spite of his less than perfect English. Having this as a part of my childhood has resulted in me stopping straight in front of any store where there is a sign that is perfect, imperfect, off-center, interesting or beautifully hand-painted. The number one thing I look for is great typography. Type sets the mood, can be beautiful or just functional but is always, out of basic necessity, telling you something.

The following is a few of my favourite images from a site dedicated to typography, Friends of Type.
