Heh–here’s a nice little satire of phony image enhancement on TV (see previous montage):
Of course, image scientists continue to work on all sorts of new craziness, so it’s all just a matter of time… right?
(rt) Type: Obsessions, apologies, and “little cows”
- “Bestiary” features lovely type & color palettes.
- Letters as a war machine. (Gerwalk much?)
- The Panic guys cleverly used Helvetica slashes to emulate the look of air mail in email.
- Dig this letterpress “Ctrl Z” apology card; nerdy & sweet. (And yes, I too would prefer “Cmd-Z.” FWIW, our toddler calls the Cmd/Apple cloverleaf shapes “little cows.” Go figure.) [Via]
