Call The Type Police


I stumbled upon the ad campagin for a design school on a magazine that I was reading on the bus. The designer for the ad is sure going to get hanged for this, pun fully intended.

In this case, the “crime” is not so bad cos it’s a pull quote and just one paragraph.

In two minds here. I would’ve probably done it both ways and decide from there. Sometimes hang quotes look a little odd.

The only time it’s very clear you need hang quotes are when they’re part of a drop cap.
