Hello all! My latest process post for Design Cuts is live. I’m excited to share this one with you, for a few reasons.
The main one is that I’ve been looking to find an excuse to use Decade Type Foundry’s Reckless typeface in a piece for quite some time. It’s a gorgeous typeface, inspired by 1940s/1950s era mechanical sports racing.
Another reason why I’m excited, is because we’ll get to make a racing event poster! The previews for Reckless certainly inspired that direction. I didn’t want to do motorcycle race, because that’s the theme they went with. Cars was an interesting one to think about, but the typeface was screaming airplane to me, because of its swashes, and winged letters. So an airplane race/airshow poster it was.
