Herb Lubalin

Design & Typo have a great collection of images from the most influential and inspirational designer of all time. He is a legend. His work was completely ahead of its time and to me still seems fresh and modern. He also designed my favorite typeface which is Avant Garde. I have the t-shirt to prove it. It’s by far the sexiest typeface in terms of clean modernity and legibility. The gothic alternatives are still a go-to trick for many designers. I even paid a little homage to Herb with the update of my site. An astute eye will make a notice of it. Herb, I am probably speaking for many designers such as myself when I say, “thank you.”
