DAY 2: Instafeedmakeover

Day 2 of the #instafeedmakeover is “Show Your Product/Work.” Talk about difficult! All my work is a complete labor of love, so it’s hard to summarize the past 5 years in just one image, but here’s a little snippet of what I do. 😀🙌🏼 I’ve been asked more than once, “How do you know your fonts when you see them?” Well, I mean, how do you know your kids when you see them? Ha ha. You just KNOW.  It’s YOU who spent the time and energy on each distinct brush stroke, so spotting your work in the wild is just second nature.

Recently I’ve found it pretty hard to summarize what exactly I do. What I tell others has changed quite a bit over the years. I used to be a Web Designer, followed by a Graphic Designer. These days I’m a bit of an illustrator, but mostly, I’m a Type Designer. Something I really just fell into, but something that’s become a love affair. 💕

In case you were curious, all my work is either hand-drawn/inked on paper or with an iPad Pro. Then I use a combination of Photoshop, Illustrator, Glyphs and Fontographer to build my final typefaces. It’s quite a process, but the satisfaction of seeing my finished work is more than enough incentive to keep it up.
