15: Yeah yeah another type one

Okay, I need to do some more shirts with pictures, not type. I could write slogans for shirts all the live-long day. But that wouldn’t make me a better designer. But. Typophile is having a t-shirt design contest and I tried to think of something to enter, or, if not to enter, than at least in the spirit of the contest. So here we have a play on the word ‘typecast’, set in Mrs. Eaves, which is apparently in vogue amongst those in the know, although this is the first time I’ve ever used it. Let me also draw your eyes to the LIGATURE that I used for the st combo. This is also the first time I’ve (knowingly) used a ligature for decorative purposes! If you don’t know, ligatures are specially designed letter combos that are supposed to prevent certain letter combinations from looking awkward or bumping into each other. But… how exactly does this st ligature do anything else except brag, “I am a ligature!” I should probably find this out.

If I was to enter this in the Typophile contest I would have to get all stressed out about kerning, etc, so the community wouldn’t call me a type moron. The typophile regulars are a bit scary.
