Nostalgia and memory often presents in our mind as clear, but in reality, the things we remember are necessarily influenced by our present tastes and our life experiences. "This Might Be The Place" is a type specimen for Millennial Serif, an experimental single-weight typeface. Millennial Serif draws from the tradition of experimental and bombastic 90's type and seeks to represent nostalgia as an unclear communication between past and present, rather than a perfect recreation of our past lives.
