They say art is everywhere. This artist/fanboy has proved it.
Saigon streets have always been a paradise of cool typographies.
Maxk Nguyen, a Ho Chi Minh City-based artist, saw a cool sign one day at a cheap sidewalk eatery selling various types of boiled eggs, including the embryo balut (which is not for the faint of heart).
“And I played a good 30 minutes with this cool font,” he said, noting that the vendor designed the original sign herself.
“If the lady had had a chance to learn Photoshop, she must have been a master in our typography world,” Nguyen said.
Check the results below to see what would happen when an artist gives a superstar treatment to the Saigon font. (Or giving superstars a Saigon street treatment?)
And the results are amazing!
So far the series has been a hit on Facebook.
Fun fact: Nguyen said he did buy a lot of eggs from the lady.
