Haphazard musings on design.

In the spirit of the Scot(typo)grapher (and the recent resurrection of all names Scott), here’s a nice piece on the Obama design style. Full of nods to New Deal typography and logo design. Oh, the nineteen-thirties! How I love thee. Puts me in mind of the Paul Bunyan Room at Memorial Union, and James Watrous’s fantastic murals…
Also, did anyone catch this nice little excursus on the NASA logo in this past week’s T Magazine? I usually find the style mag inordinately boring (slash utterly revolting), so I was quite pleased to find something at least moderately worthwhile.
