Check out these cards by Brooklyn based Enormous Champion. I LOVE them! I think this is a really original way of using script the combination with a kind of 70’s texture embossy look just works wonders and I haven’t seen anything look like this before. WANT!

I’ve noticed Canadian Ray Fenwick’s work many times in magazines during travels in the States and he always manage to put a smile on my face. He’s done job for loads of cool mags like GOOD, New York Times and Real Simple and his work is always spot on, integrating illustration with a bit of handlettering and an original colour palette. Wicked!

I think if it’s possible to talk about a font being sexy (you know what I’m talking about right?!?!) then this is it. I don’t know if it’s the name that makes me think lingerie or if it’s just the crazy yet strangely attractive curves but this baby is HOT. I have no idea what to use it for though, I just like it.

I have long been wanting to do some type work with organic materials, that’s why I was fascinated with these two pieces by one of my huge idols Mr. Sean Freeman. He rocks! I keep looking at these trying to find “mistakes”, you know, clues on how he did it. But it is of course PERFECT!

The other day I realised that I have now run this blog for 4 years, I hadn’t even noticed! So I got curious and went back to check out my very first post and it was Betsy Dunlap, my fave calligrapher of all time. A lot has happened since so I thought I’d give you a little update on Betsy, cause she kicks ass!
