Trends tend to come and go, but only a few can stand the test of time. Margo Chase’s work set a style that was the one to follow for some time, even Dennis Rodman (Chase designed a personal logo for him) jumped on the bandwagon. Now her work, a few years later and seemingly untrendy to the masses, has matured and become a very effective means of communications for her clients. The work might not be so in fashion as it used to be, but it’s good to see that it survived stardom and went on to better things. I think the WB thanks the Chase Design Group for that.

By jickity. I have always loved Margo's work. Especially the stuff for Mrs. Ritchie. Hope you are all having a nice weekend.

>14 comments for the whole month, not including the 3 from today. Hi-larious.

I know! I'm glad we can laugh about it now.

>Hope you are all having a nice weekend.

Hello Debbie. See? this is why they call us cliquish.

Yeah, I figured that my greeting might rub some people the wrong way, but I figured I would stir it up a bit. Hope you don't mind...

Hiya. By the way, debbie, the origin of "by jickity" is in this old Dwiggins thread.

>I know! I'm glad we can laugh about it now.

Good things come to those who work.

Oh not at all — so what are you all doing today? OK, maybe that is taking it out of hand.

Thought I'd make it easier for the avid Saturday morning readers:

"If you don't get your type warm it will be just a smooth, commonplace, third-rate piece of good machine technique - no use at all for setting down warm human ideas - just a box full of rivets... By jickity, I'd like to make a type that fitted 1935 all right enough, but I'd like to make it warm - so full of blood and personality that it would jump at you."


This is exactly how I feel about the digital (Linotype) rendering of Electra. It's cold, and prints too finely. I wish it were heavier, like Fournier, rather than Didot or the finer Bodonis. A comparison of 1937 and the digital, at 36pt and shown 200% here.

And to answer your question:

so what are you all doing today?

Reading Speak Up, of course.

I was truly inspired by your talk on "Building Your Personal Brand," at the WIP Leadership Summit! You "slipped" out before I could properly introduce myself, OR get one of the books you left (they went quickly!)

Hope you had a safe trip home and I look forward to more communication with you in the future!
