December 27th, 2008 by Noam Berg

Fall semester’s over, and I’m spending my vacation with my folks in London. It’s so nice to be on a subway system without a trace of Helvetica. In fact, so far I’ve seen a lot less grotesks around here. Everything seems to flow from Johnston and GIll. I like it…makes for a different feel from NYC. I’m thinking of starting a Flickr photostream of all the signage I see. The British Library has a gate that’s a typographic delight.

About the Mad Scientist Running this Show

Noam Berg is a graduate Student in the Design and Technology MFA program at Parsons School for Design in New York City. He is also the (debatably) creative force behind Exfish Studio. Noam is obsessed with old vacuum tubes, type design, computers, guitars and comic books. Noam likes Thai sweet chili sauce, hats, suits & ties, Wacom tablets, Japanese green tea (with the toasted rice), nerdy science girls, many varieties of music, SLR cameras, AnarchoJudaism, lithography and pocket watches. Noam's not a big fan of cell phones, the cool kids, ugly and over-used fonts (you know who you are!) and talking about himself in the third person. Seriously, this is really weird. I'm gonna stop doing it now.
