Michele Angelo Typo

Posted by Scott

Loving this illustrated type from Michele Angelo. The “W” is giving me some nice Roger Dean-meets-Avant Garde Magazine flashbacks.

Thank you, you’re a gold mine!

hmm, i am not too impressed by those ideas.
doesn’t anybody else think it’s a little too alex trochut + non-format?

Michele Angelo is — without a doubt — a good designer, but thats even more disappointing when those people jump on someone else’s style. i see such things on ffffound just too often. sorry.

what do you think?

I did see on Angelo’s webiste that he and Alex Trochut are friends, so it’s not surprising that they would be interested in and practice similar styles. The thing to me about having a ‘style,’ whether it’s music, design, art, or whatever is that it cannot seem forced. And I don’t feel like any of these works are forced. He may not be the champion of that particular style; but, to me the execution is still on point. Does that make sense? Anyways, just a thought.

I particularly like the last one, which I assume is where the reference to Non-Format was from?

@ brent:
exactly! it really wasn’t my aim, to insult this particular designer or his work.
like i said — it’s just that sometimes i get frustrated, when i see talented people’s work, but they seem to hop on whatever trend there is.
on the other hand, maybe that’s just the twisted view on things that the internet provides …
