    Wet is an American indie pop group from Brooklyn, New York. In 2015, American artist Cory Arcangel designed this sweatshirt as merchandising for the group, employing the typeface German Bold Italic, from the eponymous single by Towa Tei. He told the Fader:

    The URL is in German Bold Italic, which is a font developed by Kylie Minogue and Towa Tei, and released on an “enhanced CD” with their single of the same name in the ‘90s. I’ve been crazy for the font since it came out. I’ve used the font a few times in the past for artworks (I showed some drawings on paper watermarked with my name in GBI at my Whitney show in 2011) but I’ve always wanted to use it to make a shirt for a pop group…one pop group used to advertise the next. Also it’s a sick classic vector techno font, and super rare these days. The URL made the most sense given the Surfware style.

    The logo for his Arcangel Surfware brand uses Comic Sans.
