The word “lobster” might remind you of the 10-legged crustacean delicacy, but for us designers, Lobster is a common typeface that novices use on promo flyers and take-out menus. Similarly, the word “tracking” might remind you of GPS or Google Maps or the time when your over-protective boyfriend/girlfriend stalked you, but for designers, it refers to the adjustment of space for groups of letters and blocks of text.
Design resource site Pixelo has come up with a fun series of illustrations titled “Regular People vs Graphic Designers” that highlight all these differences and more. Check them out below.
