    Equally as controversial as Kanye West’s latest album, the work done by A$AP Mob’s creative collective AWGE for Jesus is King’s merchandise is bold and brash. The album and movie poster use GT Super Display (Grilli Type) and convey the royal simplicity of their title.

    There is a stern difference between the two styles of design – that which is purely Jesus is King is much cleaner and presentable, whereas the rest of the merchandise really goes its own way typographically.

    Much of AWGE’s type work breaks professional design standards, stretched type, pixelated images, and un-centered text plague the merchandise line in an attempt to be “so bad it’s good”.
