Distressed Typography

015The local liquor store window is a montage of different typefaces.

Displayed in this image is the distressed type of “Magic Hat.” In my opinion, this poster was not a very successful use of this typographic style. Perhaps if the poster was smaller in scale, the distressed areas would not be so bulky and unnatural. This is something that any designer must keep in mind when creating a work for print–the scale at which the design will be produced.


One thought on “Distressed Typography

  1. I agree with you. I do not think this poster was designed well at all! However, it is a great example of distressed typography. I have never tried Magic Hat and this poster does not make me want to either-bad advertising!
