Misprinted Type

Ok, now you guys are going to laugh at me, but don't. This wouldn't be a big deal for a lot of people, but remember, I'm not a designer. I'm just someone who picked up a little Photoshop between phone calls. (Some people would use the word dilettante, but some people are just plain mean.) This is a big deal for me.

I saw this Florida ad in a magazine today, and I recognized the typeface. Or font. I don't even know the difference. But I recognized it. It's called "Porcelain," and it's by Eduardo Recife, and I know that because I posted about his firm, misprinted type, on NOTCOT(.org) a couple of months ago.

Ok, it's distinctive. Not a hard font to recognize. Someone like Ben Terrett (see below) would have recognized it in his sleep.

But I'm no Ben Terrett. I'm not a graphic designer--I've never even taken a class. I'm a psychologist.

And I'm feeling pretty good right now.
