James T. Edmondson / Type & Lettering

01

Beginning as part of a 50 part poster series about bad advice, Wisdom is a geometric script designed to be set on a 30 degree incline.

Wisdom quickly became popular after its release in July of 2011. So popular in fact that a tumblr started dedicated to fake rebrands using only Wisdom.

Also, it was knocked off (and arguably improved) with another typeface. People often show me pictures of that typeface and say, “Hey look it’s Wisdom.” I say, “No, it isn’t.” Then I cry and cry and cry.

Wisdom was my first release, so it’s not perfect. In fact, a large part of me is wondering why I’m even putting it up on this portfolio at all. I guess the answer is that some people find it useful. And there will be a sequel someday, but there isn’t yet. So until then… criticize away.

One weight. 109 glyphs.
