white on red

Here’s an example of how the smallest of details makes the biggest difference. Big thanks to Amishi Parekh for sharing her picture taken in Bombay…another awesome #FontSunday contribution. What first caught my eye was the beautiful ligature created between the A and r in Art and the way the o in Co comes to a beautiful end. Someone cared about the letterforms in this sign. It’s just beautiful. When Amishi posted this picture I immediately thought of the picture I took in Cleveland. The end of the h in Push just blows my mind.

What makes this door even more amazing is that it’s just a random door on the side of a building. Like the picture taken in Bombay, both artists really cared about the individual letterforms. White lettering on red is usually a hard read but both of these signs pull it off very well.
