Greta Says…

Greta Thunberg: “How sate you deny? Ratburger.org rocks!”

Now you can make Greta the Mindless Climate Puppet say anything you want!  A graphic designer has created a new, free typeface called “Greta Grotesk” based upon the lettering of young Miss Thunberg’s signs.  You can download the font from this page.  The font is in OpenType format (.otf), which is compatible with many systems; here is how to install such fonts on Ubuntu Linux.

If you’d like to make your own sign, here is a blank template with which to start.  To preserve resolution, the template is a large (2040×1360) image.  After you’ve added your text, scale to something appropriate for your application (for example, 640 pixels wide for the Web) and export the smaller image.

Enjoy!

  1. As an aside, when I went looking for Greta’s screed speech on the YouTube, the top hit was for Sky News. With 2.5 M views, it got ratioed almost 2:1. Poor Greta is not as popular with the little people as she is with the beautiful people. I’m surprised YouTube has not faked modified the like/unlike ratio in the name of fairness.

  2. I always thought the idea of a celebrity endorsement was to help a web site. Now we will have people shutting down their computers to protect the bi-polar bears. Was Scarlett Johansson busy?

    Are you spreading the alarm that the Sky News video is falling, DocLor?

  4. In a world with Photoshop, you never let anyone take your picture while you’re holding a sign.

    My rule is, never let anyone take your picture.

    What are you saying about Vance?

    Honestly, no one is going out of their way to take my picture . . . with or without a sign
