The Details

The custom typemark packs a lot of personality and movement. The secondary marks were inspired by the chattering “Yakity‐Yak Talking Teeth,” a symbol of comedy since the 1940s.

Inventor Eddie Goldfarb saw an ad for a false‐teeth holder called a “Tooth Garage” and cracked up. He imagined a pair of dentures chomping and sputtering down the road, like a car, and then parking on their own. This symbol is fitting for LaZoom as it combines the movement and wheels of the bus with comedy.
