Gathering Resources

I'm a typography enthusiast, always searching for that perfect type to tie together my work. Here are 60 neat fonts.

  • My inspiration for this project was the tuning and modified car scene. I wanted to make a sticker for slightly modified cars with subtle yet classy appearance. Hand illustrated type.

  • The Project Scope Here is a logo design done for a client, who is planning to open up her own acupuncture clinic called Flow. I created an acupuncture needle in indesign to reflect the vibe the client envisioned for her business.

  • Project Scope Here I have designed a logo for a family business which releases white pigeons at weddings. The client requested that I incorporate a white pigeon in the logo. I chose to draw out the white pigeon in flight and combined it with a very clean type to create an elegant feel.

  • The Project Scope This is a logo done for a pigeon racing club located on the south side of Chicago. The club wanted a simple yet dynamic logo that would represent their club, and update their image.    

Inspiration
  • Visual design is often the polar opposite of engineering: trading hard edges for subjective decisions based on gut feelings and personal experiences. It’s messy, unpredictable, and notoriously hard to measure.
