I caught this nice little Kickstarter video today while reviewing the top 2012 funded projects. It’s a typeface commissioned by the city of Chattanooga. Their pitch video is really well done, in that Helvetica 1, designer-friendly way. It reminds me of the really excellent podcast “99% Invisible” by Roman Mars, which explores the hidden world of design principles and how that world commingles with the public.
I’m inspired by good design, even if the design isn’t in my own field. And on top of that, I’m inspired by esthetic qualities of all design. I suppose that’s why I’m more Apple than Microsoft or Linux.
- if you haven’t seen this design-heavy documentary, you need to now!
