FOH (that’s Friend of HOW) Jennifer Visocky O’Grady sent us a link to this parody video that had us FALLING OUT OF OUR CHAIRS: “Neutra Face: An Ode on a Typeface” (A Bearded Poker Face Parody). It’s a type geek’s homage to House Industries‘ mid-century modern font, done in tune to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.” The creators (Jason Kinney, Tristan Bynum, Forrest Martin and Mark Searcy)acknowledge they didn’t realize the true pronunciation of the font is “NOYtra,” not “NEWtra.” Whatever. The lyrics are freaking hysterical. You’ll be singing “… even if it’s Bold Italic” all day, trust me.

    Credit for this find goes to my friend Christine Mauersberger, who generously spread the "Na, na, na, na, Na, na, na, na" contagion. I applaud adding "Neutra" to the List of Words Designers Secretly Feel Insecure Pronouncing, along side "Eames" and "Helvetica Neue." Bryn, please tell me you’ve booked these guys as the opening act for Denver.
