David Carson and his notorious use of Dingbats!

Image

David Carson was hired by publisher Marvin Scott Jarrett to design Ray Gun, an American alternative music and lifestyle magazine that debuted in 1992 in California.

In one issue, he notoriously used Dingbat, a font containing only symbols, as the font for what he considered a rather dull interview with Bryan Ferry. (However, the whole text was published in a legible font at the back of the same issue of Ray Gun, complete with a repeat of the asterisk motif).
