I was working on a little something for one of our clients today, and felt like it needed a little something to give it some funk. Or something. I’ve been exploring using “noise” in visual design lately, and beat up old typewriters can be perfect for that.
The noise of typewriters must have been the way to gauge how much work the office was getting done.
So I pulled out my little portable Royalite ’64 typewriter and had some fun.
Hearing the typewriter echo through our shop made me laugh, and I thought how back in the day typewriter noise must have been a way to gauge how productive an office was at any given moment.
So after getting distracted by researching the marketing language used to sell chic little portable typewriters to hipsters (see image above, and then replace the typewriter with a laptop) I thought it might be fun to make a blog post on a typewriter, and then post it on telephone poles or something. If nothing else it would give new meaning to a “blog post”.
