I stumbled onto Michael Doret’s work while reading “Logo and Lettering Bible”. In the section I was reading he states that he still likes to make tight pencil comps before bringing his work into illustrator, and it shows. Basketball fans may know his work, as he was the one to design the New York Knicks Logo.
Vectuts has interviewed him if you’d like to know more about his influences and process.
reblogging for MOAR MICHAEL DORET
I LOVE Michael Doret’s lettering art. He’s got this really punchy, vintage-New-York-inspired style that makes me think of a mixture of carnivals, glitzy musicals and midcentury sitcoms. (Yeah, I know, random comparisons, but they make sense in my head.)
Tobias Frere-Jones and Aoife Mooney of H&FJ have just released Idlewild, a really neat wide sans-serif in the vein of Bank Gothic or Copperplate (well, Copperplate’s a serif, but…similar letterforms). Not getting it right now—don’t have the cash to do so, nor do I have any particular need for a font like that at the moment—but it would be great on film posters to replace the dreaded Bank Gothic.
I am kind of a fanperson of H&FJ, considering my (over)use of Ideal Sans on ALL THE THINGS.
‘Fuck This and Go to Art School’
this is the message I have for you. :P
