Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’

Beautiful typo on Esquire's almost cover-of-the-year

November 18, 2007, 1:54 AM

One of the two finalists for the best cover of the year, this Esquire cover featuring George Clooney is a real typo treat (penciled by illustrator Marion Deuchars – check her site for some beautiful work):

You can bet it ain’t easy drawing typo that seems bad, sloppy, but looks so good. Talk about “ugly design“.

Too bad the romanian first issue changed the drawn letters with normal fonts (i know, drawing them in romanian wouldn’t have been the same, but at least they could’ve tried, because that was the concept, showing Clooney with the pencil in his hand – you can see the romanian cover here).
