Criatipos Jingle Bells
I'm a Brazilian product designer based in Oakland, California currently working for Google as a Staff Designer. I am also the founder of Abduzeedo, an award-winning digital publication about design and a personal project that has become the source of inspiration for millions of designers and enthusiasts.
The only way to learn anything is by practicing. The more you practice and exercise, more you become aware of the subtleties of what you are working on. That is very clear in design and more specifically, calligraphy. Jackson Alves has been doing that everyday. To improve my letters, I try to practice every single day on several surfaces with different pens. Bellow there is some calligraphy of my daily practice – ink on paper, ink on glass, chalk on wall – who I call “#Daily Calligraphy”.
Following our post yesterday about ligatures, today we're excited to share yet another article about typography. This time we feature an incredible personal project on calligraphy by Joan Quirós, a graphic designer born in Valencia, Spain and currently working in London. A selection of my personal work done just for practicing and just for having fun. Most of them uploaded on my Instagram account.
There was a time, not too long ago where I was focusing my free time on my hand-lettering skills. As easy as it seems, it was a hard challenge. I should get my hands back at this medium but right now I am focusing my time on photography. But if you are into lettering or a beginner, and you are looking for artists to follow on Instagram. It's a great to one, get inspired.
