To Piss Off Designers

Kerning and line spacing

Once in a while I come across a publication with some designer mistakes. In this case it's the launch cover of Vogue Homme NL where different line spacing is used within the first block of text on the top left and on three other places. For example the first word 'De' isn't correctly lined with the next two lines. Of course designers are humans too (God knows I've made some mistakes!) but these ones can easily be prevented by working on grid or checking line hights manually. Still, Vogue is forgiven because of it's ace cover image shot by Philippe Vogelenzang.

Happy 'H'

An important letter

I've come to realize that the letter 'H' is probably my favourite letter in the alphabet as it stands for basically every emotion or need that truly matters. To give a few examples: Happiness, Health, Heart, Hate, Hope, Honesty, Humble... And then there are just some common but important words that start with an 'H' such as: Home or Habitat, Hello or Hi, Hallelujah, Holism, Holland, Human, Hug. The letter 'H' also happens to be the first letter of my boyfriend's name which is Harry, who's celebrating his birthday today (ehm... Hooray!). Obviously this kept me busy graphically. I hope you like it.
