See-line woman. Dressed in green. Wears silk stockings. With golden seams. See-line woman. See-line woman. Dressed in red. Make a man lose his head. See-line woman. See-line woman. Black dress on. For a thousand dollars. She wail and she moan. See-line woman. Wiggle wiggle. Turn like a cat. Wink at a man. And he wink back. Now child. See-line woman.

The photo above is of one or my long time & dearest friends Yvette Tamaika combined with my new favorite typeface Afrobeat, which was created by Spanish designer Giuseppe Salerno.

I stumbled across Afrobeat on the Kiss My Black Ads blog & fell in love immediately. You see, I’m a font whore! A font whore who has been know to drop a few hundred dollars on face types only to regret it later. Well regret it until it appears in a project where it looks totally awesome.

Inspiration:

“The pounding tribal rhythms of Afrobeat music is expressed through this psychedelic brand new font, Afrobeat. Every letter becomes art as every letter is elegantly placed side by side, like music notes, creating music for the eyes.

Afrobeat is a musical style performed by many African artists such as Fela Kuti, Femi Kuti, Antibalas and many more, which is a fusion of jazz,funk, and psychedelic rock, originating from the 60s and was based on the political movements of Nigeria.”

It takes a lot for me to splurge on a typeface & it’s been a while so I’m in a good space.

Are you a typeface whore of junky? What your favorite & what’s the most that you have paid for a font. Don’t be afraid to speak, you’re amongst friends here.
