a timetable for Eastern Airlines, featuring a bright green pamphlet with a white grid and a repeated eastern air logo. this image was sourced from https://thetravelingsteves.com/1980s-airline-timetables/
a pamphlet for cohost, featuring the same grid pattern and a repeated oval logo pattern

came across the old logo for the now-defunct Eastern Air Lines, featured on this timetable for the last year they were in service. naturally im obsessed and had to do a cohost version

(it's worth noting that apparently EAL went bankrupt in 1989 due to 1. incurring a record-setting fine for repeated safety violations and 2. locking out their workers to force them to accept huge pay/benefit cuts in order to afford said fine. then the pilots and flight attendants called a sympathy strike. oops!)



i think the modern web has cursed me. i think they pulled an ol’ pavlovian conditioning trick without knowing it. every time i open a website now i am so anxious to ever scroll down because i’m already half-expecting it to suddenly kick you out halfway down the page with a big popup begging you oh won’t you please log in or sign up to see more tweets… won’t you please give us your email address… won’t you please pay us $5 a month so you can read the rest of the article…

this is just some blurred text… if u can read this no you can’t

i can’t just paste the same character in here over and over because even when it’s blurred you’d probably be able to tell. and lorem ipsum is so boring. i mean, i guess i could post the bee movie script here, but like, whatever,

gotta get some of that gray thingy in here. i don’t remmeber what it’s called. it’s very important in type design. to get, like, your overall text to look like an even gray. you dont want random characters to stick out too much. this paragraph is gonna be a little longer. gotta get some variety in here y’know. bluh bluh bluh text tex text. u ever think about letters? my favorite little type design thing is like, the lowercase y in e.g. Fira Sans. it’s very subtle, but if you look close you’ll see that the left and right lines don’t join together perfectly. instead, the left line sticks out a little bit. i think that’s so nice.

alright I think that’s enough text. i can probably stop writing this now!!!

Diet caffeine-free Symphony of the Night. The combat is quite solid, and the bosses that really leaned in on the element-shifting aspect of it were a lot of fun. Everything else was just porridge-bland ultra-linear Castlevania-alike.
