Winnipeg Ghost Signs

I traveled to Winnipeg last week for a family reunion, and was floored by the quantity and quality of painted ads on the buildings. A few of my favorites:

Bungee’s Stacked Accents

Stacking letters gets extra tricky when accents are involved. Bungee’s accented characters are spaced and kerned so that they set well with other letters, even other accents. Here are three examples from Portuguese, Turkish, and Polish that show Bungee’s accent-to-accent spacing.

  • Krężoły: Polish, the name of several villages in Poland
  • Üşümek: Turkish, to feel cold or chilly
  • Coraçao: Portuguese, heart

The ever-hilarious Chris Lewis came up with a great term for this: staccents!
