Woah. So following the smokingly chic and understated video for ‘1991‘, Azealia Banks’ new video for ‘Atlantis’ is the embodiment of ‘fashionably ugly‘ graphic design.The aesthetic is all so self-consciously low-tech and nineties, that I almost expected for some Clipart to make an appearance.
Seriously, there’s even a bit where Brush Script lettering is used to spell out some lyrics. I’m not sure I’m into it – I’m too much of a font snob!
It could have been much worse, though. It could have been Comic Sans. I don’t think we’re at the stage where it’s considered ‘funny’ or ‘ironic’ to use Comic Sans, but I’m telling you…that day will inevitably come, and no doubt the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse will show up soon after.
