The story of 5 letters that almost got lost

I did it again. I made a new font! The thing is, I don’t like when letters get lonely, so when I created 5 of them for a client logo that was rejected, I couldn’t stand the idea of my babies getting swallowed in a creative black hole, where all the sad rejected ideas go. So I created the rest of the alphabet, and the rest is history. Hope you enjoy, and I’d be happy to see if you use it!

Aery – a new statement font

As you guys probably know by now, I am a font/typography addict. I guess I was probably even born to create fonts and explore in that area. So here I am, releasing my second font as a gift to you dear font-lovers and designers of all kind from around the globe. I describe it as a bodoni-inspired statement font as bad ass as glamorous with a serious load of charm. I am releasing it free-for-personal-use so may this be the font you were looking for to showcase your creativity in any way you like. Oh, and feel free to show me the result of your work, it’s always a pleasure! Hope you guys enjoy :)

Cheers! / Collaborating with Help Ink

Remember my post about watercolor quotes? Help Ink recently asked me to collaborate with them on an inspiring typographic watercolor design for prints and cards. For those who aren’t familiar with Help Ink, it’s a collaborative project, using the sale of premium and exclusive art to help charities in an exciting way. For every 5 dollars spent, 1$ goes directly for a good cause. Awesome, isn’t it? You’d guess I was more than pleased to team up with them on such a cool project! So here’s the final result:

It’s called Cheers and I decided to go with a quote that simply represents pure happiness for me, through small and unsuspected pleasures, like having a banana milkshake. I’ve always been drawn to this idea of gathering and enjoying all the little pleasures in life instead of waiting for the big happy circumstances.

My print is actually on new-release sale, so better catch it before it’s back to normal price! You can buy it here. & see all the products here. Please, let me know if you buy it, and I’d be more than happy to see a picture of where you hung it! Make sure you check out the other projects too, there are some pretty amazing artists out there! (and I do have to mention my favorite typographer; Jessica Hische!)

Finally, a big thanks to Help Ink for this collaboration! Cheers!

Watercolor quotes

There’s this project I’ve worked on a few months ago, that I just forgotten to share with you! Since i’m a huge fan of typographic quotes and I had just started experimenting with watercolor, I decided to make a few colorful quotes to improve my techniques. I’ve picked up 3 quotes that really stuck to me at that time. Here’s what I came up with:

Do you like it? I’m also working on a new amazing project using the same technique that I can’t wait to share with you! I’ll keep you posted as soon as it’s done!

You can also take a look at my behance portfolio over here.

Hi guys! I am soooooo happy to announced that I am currently featured on FreshIdeas as designer of the week along with my font that is available as freebies!

Introducing my first font

People who worked with me know that one of my favorite thing in design is typogaphy! One of my coworker once attributed me the title of «Typography Queen». Lately, I’ve experimented a lot in this area. This week I decided it was about time I created my first font. I used FontForge to create it since I was looking for a free software. This font is free to use for personnal and commercial use. You will find a download link at the bottom of this post. So now, let me introduce you to my first font: Fancy Me!
