Fun with type
The Clearleft office is a nice place to work. It’s a nice place to hang out generally. That’s by design. We’ve had interior decorators work their magic to come up with a cool set-up.
We’ve got a nice comfy sofa, obligatory Aeron chairs and bespoke desks graced only by shiny Macs. It all makes for a very nice environment in which to sip lattés.
The decorators mentioned something about getting giant letters made for us. Splendid idea, I thought, as did fellow type-fiend, Richard. So we ordered a batch of letters to spell out the company name.
Today we unpacked those letters. They look kind of Eurostile-esque so they’d look good in a space station from a ’70s sci-fi movie. They looked pretty good on our shelves, spelling out Clear Left.
Of course five minutes later we re-arranged them into some more interesting combinations:
- Elf Cartel
- Feral Celt (describes me to a T)
- Rectal Elf
