This weeks post comes with a interesting #story – back in 1994, when I was researching for my thesis work I discovered the work being done by Neville Brody for FontShop International. I contacted the FontShop in the US and wanted to purchase the font sets that had been developed to date. Well, their price was way out of my meager range. What to do? I decided to call the Toronto office and l was able to get myself a serious student discount. Because of that, I purchased the first 10 Fuse “issues”. What was amazing, besides the fonts, were the posters that came with each issue. There are 4 per issue, designed by the font designer, along with single thematic poster done by Brody himself.
The above poster was done by Neville Brody for the “Crash” issue of Fuse 7 in 1993.
