It's Day 3 of 31 Days of typography, and we're going strong. And by strong I mean bold, like this numeral above. Can you believe this lovely set of type that jumped out at me from a sign board? Of all numbers, 58! If you subtract 5 from the 8, you get 3...a sign that this was meant to be, right? Ok, maybe a stretch, but I did love these funky numbers that serve as an address and a directory board for shops nearby. The curl at the bottom of the five, the thick, sweeping 8...yes! I'm actually not sure if I like the shape of the 8 or the teardrop shapes in the 8's negative space better. This numeral knows it's cool and it should, because it's got style to prove it.
Hope your day is filled with fun details like this guy. Keep your eyes open and let me know what you find!
Peace and numbers, Caitlin
