Here’s a few typography poster I designed.  I printed these out and set them on poster board.  These are two rough prints, I only have 4 printed for now.  I have a few pages of different sketches on this topic that I might turn into finished posters.  I’m also going to be making some stickers for these soon.  So the question is, do you text and drive?  I think we all do.  Here are some facts below that you may not know, courtesy of a study from the Virginia Tech Transportation Institution.
