Typographer - Neil Summerour

Well I just got my myfonts html email of Neil Summerour's work. And I fell deeply in love with the hand-inked prints. So beautiful! Check out myfonts for some lovely type design.

Humble Pied - Jessica Hische

What an inspiring couple of minutes from Brooklyn, NY typographer/illustrator Jessica Hische. The quote makes me wonder what is my favourite thing to procrastinate with!

Wonderful quote also...

“The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life.”



Her work is wonderfully inspiring also, beautiful hand-drawn typefaces, logotypes and lots of intricate pattern work! Also check out dailydropcap.com for a drop-cap-a-day.

What type are you?

This is probably quite an old thing - as it is a christmas card, and it is now January, but I have just seen it! www.pentagram.com/what-type-are-you/ . If you are like me - a type designer - you have always wondered what typeface you are (and not just the facebook type tests!) This is a beautiful site that asks four questions, and then explains why you are a certain typeface, and it most definitely makes me smile!
Password for the site is: Character

I got Architype Van Doesburg - which is something I didn't expect, but very interesting to find out!


 

 



So, what type are you?
