Thursday Inspiration: Vintage Cartoon Typography

What’s up, doc[s]? I’ve decided to start throwing the inspiring image-stuffs I find online, print collateral I scan, or photos I take of things I stumble upon into a Flickr set called Graphic Design Inspiration. Here’s my first image in the set. I found it while perusing Molly Crabapple‘s Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School site (which is amaaazing). Definitely check it out. Inspiring image lies below!

You’re so my TYPE: Memoriam

I’m not the biggest typophile, but I do appreciate a good font when I see one. I religiously read I Love Typography and today they highlighted their fave fonts of 2009. Scrolling through I could not get past Memoriam when I saw it… it just, kinda blew me away. Breathtaking. Take a looksy.

Beautiful, classy and funky with a hint of retro flare. This is a great display font… sized any smaller than 48 point and a lot of information is lost. So delicate! I’m tempted to purchase and play. It’s fascinating how a font can be so inspiring. Ah, the possibilities for Memoriam!
