2 Random Typefaces Design Challenge
Recently I saw this cool little challenge @typesetting was doing.
Chose two fonts at random, tried to make them work.
And I thought
well, well, well, I wanna take a crack at this, but in code! because why not?
Step by step of what I did next:
- Go to http://fonts.google.com
- Focus on search input
- Randomly bang some keys
- Press backspace till the results show something
- Pick the 1st font
- Repeat for another font
I got Comfortaa and Square Peg this way.
After analyzing the typefaces a bit, the first thing that popped up in my mind is GTA: Vice City, which drew a lot of inspirations from the 80s show Miami Vice starring Don Johnson.
So I ended up with this 80s styled promo for a fake radio station.
