energize me

I'm not sure what this is, but I love it. Garamond has always been one of my favorite serifed typefaces, (due in no small part to the influence of one of my design professors, Meredith Davis, and also the main titles from 'thirtysomething' which was popular while I was in school.) Oddly enough, I can only think of one project that I have used it for - ever. And if you've followed my blog, you know that I've always found some odd beauty in powerlines - they often seem to show up in my 'gallery' posts. So for me, what's not to love about a project called 'garamond powerline'? It looks to be from the website of a German graphic designer named Daniel... whether its a professional project or just a personal experiment or student work, I have no idea. But to me, its beautiful.

    Garamond and Franklin Gothic are my two favorite fonts and I'm using them pretty much on a daily basis. Daniel is using over-head contact wires or catenaries for trains to form the characters. Along with support beams, train signals and the like used by the Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB), the federal train system in Germany. This is actually very cool. Thanks for pointing this out.
