3. Want this Typeface: Oaf
Can I have it? Pleeeeease?
Oaf doesn’t go to art museums or the opera. Oaf doesn’t eat paté, whatever that is. Oaf was painted on a wall by an eccentric Canadian with a paint roller. The result is an unusual combination of straight, evenly weighted strokes and rough, handmade charm.
4. Destination NYC Logo
It took me awhile to come on board the trend in every changing and morphing logos… of course the first to my recollection to do this was AOL. This recent identity was created by School of Visual Arts Masters in Branding Program under the guidance of Mark Kingsley, for the MoMA Design Store.
It plays at the phrase: “it’s at the corner of ____ and ____”
If there is one thing to say about this, it is that it feels like New York. It’s messy, it’s busy, it’s cacophonous, it’s a bunch of stuff piled on each other regardless of whether it’s cool (graffiti) or uncool (pigeon). The concept of putting it all in a “corner” is a great way to tie it all together.
