I’ve been flipping through Ellen Lupton’s Thinking with Type this week and looking at simple type and it’s power. The trend to overload a page with several loud fonts is starting to get to me, so I wanted to get back to the basics of type design in my own work. Then I came upon this set of ads for The Guardian, done by Wieden & Kennedy, London. It pretty much speaks directly to what I’m sick of. Check out the other two ads at The AdBlog.
