Imagine there’s an explosion in a comic book, the exclamation that follows is set in PAGODA INTERNATIONAL.
This font is inspired by the graphics on one of Honolulu’s 1950’s skyscrapers - The Pagoda Hotel with the International Ballroom. Created by former wine label designer, Wesley Poole, Pagoda is the opposite of sophisticated elegance. "Big, fat, and horsy, that’s what I was after. It’s the wacky juxtaposition of these familiar shapes that makes it work. Just try a couple words. You'll be surprised! I'm glad this one’s behind me. It’s my first pancake."
