“God is in the kerning.” — Matteo Bologna

Gotham and Futura are a couple of my favorite sans-serif fonts. Don’t get me wrong, I like Helvetica, but you need to spice it up sometimes. These were assignments in my typography class at CU. I got my inspiration after reading “Thinking with Type” by Ellon Lupton. If you haven’t read it, you must.
