Maybe it’s because my handwriting is so bad (I should have been a doctor) that I appreciate type. Especially hand-written type or calligraphy. I admire people who have talent in that arena. People like Sasha Prood. Don’t you just love her work? She’s a designer, illustrator and artist living in Brooklyn, New York. (Is it me or is Brooklyn the hub for amazing talent?) She creates typography, illustrations, patterns and graphics using pencil, pen and watercolor with the computer. She says thematically, her works lean toward the organic, natural and scientific with vintage, utilitarian and childhood influences. Her resumé is quite impressive: J. Crew, Juicy Couture, Estée Lauder, Wired, Maxim, Harper Collins, Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine… just to name a few. She’s one talented lady! And she’s constantly honing her craft – this fall she’ll be attending Cooper Union’s typeface design program, Type@Cooper, to further improve her typographic skills.

Wish there was a program for improving my handwriting.

I’m a little obsessed with the work of Maricor/Maricar (twin sisters Maricor and Maricar Manalo, from Australia), who make the most beautiful type from embroidery and cut paper. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is pretty incredible. They’re also illustrators, designers and animators to boot. Check out a cute interview with the dynamic duo over on As Prescribed, an artist driven t-shirt label which features a Maricor/Maricar illustration entitled, The Hungry Slug. Love these two!

I love type. I can’t remember the last time I’ve gotten to produce a type-lead campaign. I long for the day I do so that maybe, I’ll get to work with London-based Sean Freeman. He is so talented. I love his vision and his approach. Check out his amazing work. Or read Chris Rubino’s interview with Sean in IDSGN’s Fresh & Hungry series, to learn a little about his process. He’s pretty cool. And so young…
