[60] Not With a Bang but a Sizzle.


So, here's the deal with the lettering on the images. For a while, I've been building up the words by manually dragging each letter from a photoshop file. That file got overwritten two weeks ago. I rebuilt the file from the original image tonight but it wasn't quite right. My roomate, who is a font-creator, overheard my bitching and said "why don't you let me make a font of that for you." We talked a bit about why I've been doing it the hard way for so long and what I want out of the lettering. He thinks we can make it happen. So, again, I apologize for the lame lettering this week.

I am curious, however. What do you guys think about the various kinds of lettering I've used? Do you like the grumpy pigeon lettering from a few weeks ago? Do you like the standard ransom-note style that I've been doing for so long? Does it not matter to you at all?

Please struggling economy, don't take my bacon!

Another vote for the ransom note style.

I also like the ransom style. And for what it's worth, it reads more slowly...more integrated somehow?

Have to admit, the font doesn't make a difference to me, but it is a nice touch. Whatever you do, save the bacon! Speaking of which, we should do a friends breakfast at someone's house - it's been ages.
