Slurp and Salty by Michelle Vaughan
An oyster lover, artist Michelle Vaughan uses text to capture the action of eating the popular shellfish. And the delicate pink coloring? Vaughan chose this shade for its resemblance to the interiors of oyster shells. Even the Hamilton Gothic typeface, originally owned by the Baltimore Police Department, is meant to evoke Vaughan’s favorite food. “It is a clean, honest face for everyday use,” says the artist. “Oysters were once the everyman’s food, eaten by rich and poor alike—Gothic symbolizes this spirit.”
