Hit and Miss

Hit:

The new F1 Turbo typeface was designed by The Hague’s Marc Rouault. For me it brings back the nostalgia of 1970’s F1 (black and gold John Player Special Lotus) with a modern twist. The sweeping ascenders and descenders allude to fast corners and racing lines, the crossbar on the ‘a’ is brilliant (have a closer look) and the numerals are just as provoking. F1 Turbo typeface – 0 to my favourite in 2 sec. #f1 #turbo #typeface #design#nostalgia #johnplayerspecial #creative

Miss:
Mercedes C- class, launched in the 1990’s as a replacement for the 190E, the C- Class (C stands for compact) has enjoyed immense popularity. For me the latest model, with its arching lines and droopy ass has lost a lot of that Mercedes brand essence, dammit, cover the badge and you’re driving a Chrysler, Ford or any other American monstrosity. Best C-Class ever – 1996 C220 W202 model. #merc #cardesign#cclass #wherehasthestylegone #automotive
