“A good tpyeafce mkaes ahnytnig eeisar to raed” – Typemuseum Poster Designed by AMVBBDO
Back in 2014 I came across this very cool typographic poster (below) for the typemuseum which had been floating around the interwebs for a while.
Never seen a ‘quality’ version of it, with each instance of it used being JPEG’d and progressively degraded each time it’s shared, uploaded, resaved etc.
Add more JPEG!
Did some digging around, in the hope of finding a larger and cleaner version of this typographic poster, but alas nothing.
However, I was able to narrow down that this was designed by AMVBBDO (Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO), a print advertisement back in 2005 for the typemusuem.org
Couldn’t locate any mention of it on Abbott’s website, which is a shame; probably been long relegated to the archives.
So I Recreated it in Helvetica for Download
I decided to whip-up a reasonably accurate facsimile of the poster, but using Helvetica. I will say it was really tough typing out that sentence; my brain kept wanting to correct the spelling, and was much harder than I thought to just read, and type, one letter at a time.
The final image you can see below which you can download if you wish. It’s a reasonably high resolution PNG file at 3500x5000px, so big enough to print out if you want.
Would like to stress: I didn’t design this poster; I just faithfully recreated it.
