Sadly, they are making fun of me!


Advent calendars galore! A fun way to play with type, packaging and craft materials… if you have the time. Maybe next year ;)

Handwritten Typographers

I’ve always been fascinated (and often, surprised) with how one’s handwriting reflects their personality. Here’s a look at some noted typographers’ writing samples – an interesting peek at the influence behind a typeface.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
