Journal Entry #6

The Chalk Typography is very popular style in design right now. I love the idea of taking something like a chalkboard and adding type to it. It just seems like this style could be popular for a while. It reminds me of being a child and drawing on the black board. My little girl won’t even see one because they would have something high tech when she goes to school. Its sad chalkboards are vintage.
