Tool: Identifont

And the answer is...Gill Sans!

With the help of the wonderful Identifont, I managed to identify a seemingly non-descript font from tens of thousands of others. It saved me a lot of time, and a lot of hair pulling.

(I should have known it was Gill Sans.)

Site: Grain Edit

"Grain edit is focused on classic design work from the 1950s-1970s and contemporary designers that draw inspiration from that time period.
Site content includes interviews, articles, designers’ libraries as well as examples of rare design annuals, type specimens, Ephemera, posters and vintage kids books from our bookshelves."

I stumbled across this site by happy accident as I hunted for something else for work. I'm a big fan of this style of design, so I'll be visiting here often, and my design work will be morphing accordingly.


Artist: James Jean

Books full of beautiful sketches of the everyday.
