Stylish and compelling. When you see this, there’s that brief moment - just a nanosecond - when the U and the J read as pure, abstract geometry, then a nanosecond later read as the letterforms they are. I could comfortably live in that first nanosecond for a few weeks at least.
Here’s a reader contribution that I’ve been holding onto for months, just waiting for the right counterpart to appear. It’s a real shame I had to wait so long to show it too, because wow, is it awful. I’ve seen a lot of bad ligatures in my time, but this is among the most stupid ever made. Also, that typeface is criminal.
Any guesses what a Celebritu is? Leave a comment. The most entertaining definition gets a prize.
The sh*tty image was supplied by my pal Domenic Pagaliluan. Thanks D!
