Week 8: Type Noticings

When walking in the woods with some friends in Mount Gretna yesterday, I found this paper on a bench. The overall design here is painful, especially surrounding “Merchandiser.” The bottom strokes of the letters I, S, E, and R are resting right against the yellow box, which really looks juvenile. Same with the bowl of R hitting the blue ribbon image. Also, the M’s hairline has too much going on where it overlaps the blue bar. There’s too many lines there. “Lebanon Area,” however, looks great in line with letters E, R, and C.
