I was at the British Grand Prix on Sunday. As ever I was keeping my eye out for some interesting graphics design.
This font only seemed to be used on the tickets and car park stickers, but I thought it was quite interesting. I'm assuming it was hand drawn, mainly because I can't be bothered to look for it online. It's obviously been designed to resemble a motor racing track. I think it does that well. Not line crosses another, you can 'race' your finger round each 'track'.
Sure, it's a teeny bit cheesy, but it's a decent idea and it's a very had thing to pull off. It's cute and it's simple enough to read. AND READABILITY is important. It's also a nice change from the speeding lines typography and forties pastiche you normally get at motorsport events.
It's not perfect. It's not brilliant. But I like it.
