My first Riso print is out!
A new week with some good news and fantastic type to inspire you!
I hope you had a good week. Here very quiet to be honest as I was still mostly a daddy at home taking care of the kids, meals and laundry. I hate laundry :D
But I found some short period of time to write my paid post on tuesday where I gave different important numbers and stats about my work, my sales and that newsletter.
As usual, you can subscribe at any time but I just introduced a 14 days free trial from now on. If you are not sure my paid publication is for you or worth it, you can now try it for 2 weeks and decide anytime to cancel it. And actually if you do it (cancel it), just let me know so I can improve my content.
So here is the link to that free trial, don’t hesitate to try :)
Scusi font available on Creative Market
Ok, so I wrote that post, but I also started to sell Scusi, my latest font on Creative Market. Some fonts, like Basalte, seems to sell pretty well lately on that platform. I am not sure where it does come from but this is great news :)
Sauvage, my new Riso print!
But this week, the biggest news is that I finally found the time to create a page to sell my new print, Sauvage. This print has a special story as it was created out of an exhibition we did with my collective Patates.
In 2021, I became part of that illustrators collective and we decided to create an exhibition around nature. We called it Sauvage. The brief was to create an illustration, 30x40cms, on Natural paper from Fedrigoni, and print it on a Risograph, this famous japanese machine.
As you can see on the video above, the colors palette was restricted around 3 colors: blue, fluo pink and yellow. I must say I am astonished by the quality delivered by my friends of the collective. If you go on the Instagram page of the collective, you can discover each illustrator and each work made by them.
I was asked by the collective to do the poster of the exhibition so I could design a lettering piece for it. So I took some colored leaves with textures and grain, and put a kind of wild/naive lettering on top of it.
Check out the exhibition and how we used the lettering on the windows of the gallery:
We did print 35 copies of the poster, 10 were sent to me and I still have 7 in stock. And now they are on sale on my website :)
They are all signed and numbered from 1 to 10. As a subscriber, don’t forget you have a lifetime coupon you can use anytime on my shop: subscriber20.
Some inspiration now :)
I am not big fan of LinkedIn, not at all. But I must admit that I get sometimes good inspiration, in particularly from an account called TypeGoodness. And this week I was not disappointed. I could discover the work from Anna Gordeychuk.
They republished a work of that designer I did not know before but who does great type projects. I selected 2 of them for you because they are near from what I like but check out her Behance profile to find out more:
Here is the branding she did for finnish tatoos stores. I love everything about it.
Brand identity made for a coffee shop.
Second inspiration of the week comes from Tamara Arkatova. I may have already talked about her here before but she decided to start over a new 100 days of lettering challenge. And so far this is so good. Here are some examples, and don’t forget to follow her to see her daily experiments.
Ok this is it for today!! I hope you got inspired by all this type p*rn. I also hope you like my Sauvage poster and you might be interested having it in your home hihi :P
