I am not awesome at being one of those people who capture ephemeral moments with their camera phones. I walked past this sign every day for a couple years on my way to work – eventually I took a picture. It’s a sort-of fun example of something Herb Lubalin (or here) might have done, but I can’t find any evidence that it’s him. It stands out, at any rate, for being a great kind of awful – over-the-top finials and found shapes within the letters make it so 70’s, but still sorta cool.
The more pertinent question is: what’s the appropriate term for somethng like Lubalin without being Lubalin? Lubalin-esque? Lubalinian? Herb-like?
