Creation #52. Versal-tility #7.

Quick design tonight. As I went through several typefaces to pick my ‘G’ this evening the ornamentation of this typeface (Jazz LET) kept catching my eye. I am often reluctant to use typography like this. This evening, however I found an unusual appreciation for this one as it is easier and perhaps pleasing to look at in small, single character, doses. Surely, setting even a small amount of copy in a face like this would be distracting to read. It works nicely for a single character and perhaps a very specific logotype or very short headline. As a second thought on the texture, creating a metallic texture, like brushed metal, might have been a nice touch for this one.

    really do agree with the use of this in small doses. display type families are usually too silly or really don’t fit the tone of whatever project i am working on. this though i can totally see being on a letter head or a business card.
