Picture of Matchstick Man
Noted matchbook collector, James Lileks on staying ahead in a fast-paced world:
Tautologies aside, Iâ€™ve noticed this: the more elaborate the grocery store promotion, the less likely Iâ€™ll care. If the store has Ten Cents Off Everything Day, Iâ€™ll show up. If they ask me to produce paperwork or enroll in a program, forget it.
But thatâ€™s not why I brought this up. Question for any graphic designers among the buzzerati: can you name the Bonus Days typeface? Itâ€™s also used in the Littlest Pet Shop toy line. Itâ€™s almost seven years old, and Iâ€™m surprised to see itâ€™s still out there.
Hey, some people are interested in string theory, others in… string.
Note: I got off of the Lileks beat some time ago when I received an email from him that simply said: “Be happy in life” which I took to be some kind of Curse of the Forehead People. So I thought it best to cool my jets. These days you just can’t be too careful…
