Vintage typography and packaging

January 15, 2013

One of the things I like most about having an iPhone is that I have a camera with me at all times. Having the ability to catch inspiration whenever I find it is a huge benefit as a designer—and finding typographic inspiration is one of my favorite things to do.

Awhile back I was forced into an antique mall for a family gathering. What seemed at first like it was going to be a very long hour of my life, actually turned into a designer’s gold mine. The vintage typography and packaging found throughout the store was incredible and thanks to my handy smartphone, I was able to capture most of it! Below is a collection of some of my favorite pieces.
