This design is based on the wonderful “Brothers” typeface. Brothers was designed by John Downer and released through Emigre in 1999. You can read more about Brothers at the Font Review Journal (which is a fantastic resource for font enthusiasts).
This is a really simple design, but I kinda love the look of the Bench card in this set.
I just wanted to wish a warm welcome back to the big leagues for Alex Blandino. The Reds have quite a logjam in the middle infield, but I hope Alex gets a shot at some quality playing time.
Blandino technically isn’t a rookie (he played in 69 games last season), but what good is a Donruss design without that great “Rated Rookie” logo?
This design is a clear tribute to some of the old Donruss designs from 1985 to 1990. The truth is, I saw a poster for the band Tame Impala, and it immediately reminded me of some of those cards.
I spent approximately 10 whole minutes cranking out this design, so it’s far from finished. I’ll probably play around with it later and try to make some improvements. If you have any ideas, feel free to add a comment.
