Obama Village

Galaxian Hearts

This is a politically neutral post, but I thought it was so well done, that I just had to share it:

Village has also released several additions to Chester Jenkins’ Galaxie Polaris family:

Version 3 of Galaxie Polaris features some minor improvements and—owing to popular demand—now comes with small caps, and Cyrillic script support.

Love the cap Q:

On top of all that, there’s a slimmer verson, Galaxie Polaris condensed.

And finally, in the spirit of neutrality: vote Obama!

  1. This is a political neutral comment… Everything is not ok. They should make posters of that. Thanks for sharing the ‘Q’, like it.

  2. Obama seems to attract good design!

    @vote Obama: look at the “A” heart… it looks like a *bottom*, isn’t it? It is not “good design”… There’s no such thing as bad publicity! sigh…

    Thanks for the link!

  5. Hey John!

    Nice post, although it’s starting to get difficult to drop by every time you post something new. Still as blast tough!

    That Q reminded me of Tom Featherby’s one for Multifarious. You can see it at http://www.tomfeatherby.co.uk/

    Cheers!

    oh that heart font is so cute :)

  7. Hearts cute, author not.

    Not every designer fawns all over Obama. I don’t mind seeing beautiful design, but your comment at the end is obnoxious. Opinions of Obama-related design are so biased that someone was knocking Optima just because McCain uses it. Retarded.

    I didn’t read Obama in the hearts at first. It’s not apparent. Definitely cute though!

    Thanks for the Multifarious link.

    Hearts cute,…
    Not sure how my comment/opinion is obnoxious, but pleased you left your comment.

    It’s so cute when some angry conservative gets his hearts in a knot over a comment in a blog. Hopefully “Hearts cute, author not” will get out an vote!
    This is a simply fantastic venue and what the hay, you work hard - go ahead, have an opinion. The optima lovers have had 8 whole years to rationalize the global design world! Let’s give the other side a chance!

    Totally agree with Kim. There are lots of political designs out there these days, so it is just fun to see all of them - including the McCain ones! And, how about the parodies on Saturday Night Live? Those are loaded with innuendo - it is just a matter of free speech and expression - and if you have a sense of humor, you should be able to handle it.

  11. I had to look more than once.
    I do love the elegant Optima, though McCain’s campaign, which lacks good design sense, had to use bold, which is clunky.

  12. Hearts cute, author not.

    To Johno, in regards to questioning the use of my word “obnoxious”:

    “And finally, in the spirit of neutrality: vote Obama!” is not cute unless you are pandering to other Obama supporters, which I suppose this post is meant to do. I would have really liked this post if it had actually been politically neutral, but your comment at the end kind of ruined it.

    @Kim: I’m a woman, and definitely not a conservative, but thanks for displaying the stereotypical mindset that makes me disgusted with American politics!

  13. And thank you, Hearts cute, author not, for your robust sense of humor.

  14. Hearts cute, author not.

    I try, Carson. I do try.

    Two fonts walk into a bar, bartender says, “we don’t serve your type here!” so they called the serif.

    Ta da!
