Who isn’t into hand-lettering these days? After telling myself the past year how I’ve always wanted to practice, I’ve finally been able to spend some time away from the computer to work on my hand-lettering skills. Having been used to spending much of my time in the digital world where mistakes can easily be adjusted and design can […]

FONTastic!

If you are like me and doubt the existence of anything that is both free and of good quality, then you will probably be surprised by this post.

It’s fall, which means VIFF is on, Oscar bate is starting to roll out, and I’ve been filling up my free time watching movie trailers.

Without a doubt, Vegas has a city-wide identity that everyone can recognize, even if you’ve never been there. It’s full of flashing lights […]

San Fran Baby

Over the long weekend a group of us went to San Francisco for a weekend getaway. The city is filled with beautiful victorian architecture and covered with amazing hand-painted signage, posters, logos–as designers it was type heaven. Having been back a couple of days, I’m already missing the sunny state of California… Until next time, here’s an […]

Daily Dishonesty

We’ve been amusedly following Lauren Hom‘s hand-lettering blog, Daily Dishonesty, for a while now, and it still makes us laugh every time. On the blog, Lauren posts a series of hand-lettered posters, each containing a little lie that she’s told herself, and we can definitely relate. Daily Dishonesty is proof that dressing up a lie […]
