Go Idlewild

For an assignment in grad school my professor made us construct sentences from typefaces found in everyday life (signs, manhole covers, etc.) Ever since then I’ve found myself  seeing great (as well as terrible) type all around me.

When I saw this sign a couple of years back I immediately fell for the hot curves and “wild” sexiness of the type (yes, I tend to use personification to describe type and it can get creepy). I took a picture but it was forgotten on my hard-drive until now.

I was looking for some inspiration for a post and started flipping through my old pics and fell in love all over again. I thought to myself, that would look great on a t-shirt. As you can tell, I do a lot of mock-ups for t-shirts and this is because I find it a lot of fun (plus Jessie LOVED designing t-shirts).

So the first step I did was isolate the type and paint it ”Biggest Little City Pink” from the Reno sign.

After that, I messed around with colors and layout and got these:

These are just for fun, only mock-ups. What do you think?
