Live Simply, Use Helvetica T-shirt – by Lamosca

use Helvetica 01

This is a fabulous T-shirt and the photo works brilliantly as well. The picture is of Khol Vinh who writes the excellent blog, Subtraction. My other favorite shirt for type-nerds is actually a hoodie with “kern” written on it, bisected of course by the zip :-) which is why it had to be a hoodie.

Another type related post I recently came across via Kottke is Michael Bierut’s 13 reasons to choose a particular typeface for a project from the design observer:

Once I saw a project in a student portfolio that undertook the dubious challenge of redesigning the Tiffany’s identity. I particularly disliked the font that was used, and I politely asked what it was. ‘Oh,’ came the enthusiastic response, ‘that’s the best part! It’s called Tiffany!’
