Love the cute lil slab serif on the sign for the bike shop, but the mixture of the minuscule “i” with the other majuscule letters just adds to the corniness on the second sign. 
Also, the parallel lines of the top of the main stoke of the “i” in the third piece and the bottom of its dot is just wonderful with the movement in opposite directions.

That yellow spray paint looks a lot like that in the ‘infectious’ one that Ty photographed for i, as well.

Found the original Japanese with the correct kanji, too. Go me!

Project Two Text?

For my text, I’ve been debating on a few different things and have narrowed it down to either a poem or a play poster.

Poem:

Display text:
To a lover

Body text:
    The autumn night
    is long only in name—
    We’ve done no more
    than gaze at each other
    and it’s already dawn
        - Ono no Komachi

or the play:

Display text:
Ordinary People

Body text:
    Director billing
    9 cast members (might include the billing for at least 2, maybe 4/5)
    Theater presenting show
    Dates of show (two weekends)
    Information for buying tickets (pricing as well as contact info).


So, those are my ideas. I’m leaning towards the play poster.

Did he appear
because I fell asleep thinking of him?
If only I’d known I was dreaming,
I’d never have wakened.
