In design, the goal is to draw someone’s attention and then communicate something, right? You can make a big statement by using little tricks, like this one - contrasting fonts. The simple dichotomy of a bold sans serif font with a cursive, romantic font is a fantastic way for Etiquette Labels to stand out.

Always a fan of Citizen Parks epic menu design, showcasing an 80s American aesthetic (as well as their beef brisket nachos, of course). This version was a goody.

Ever heard of a calligram? Its text arranged in such a way that it forms a thematically-related image and is super clever wordplay. New York based Designer, Ji Lee, has been creating calligrams for the last 20 years and we love scrolling through his collection - which is your fave?

Ambigrams I have heard of, but not calligrams. They're all clever and it's hard to pic a fave. ELEVATOR is very nicely balanced though.
