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.
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.
Wikipedia defines Calligraphy as a type of visual art related to writing. It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument or brush in one stroke (as opposed to built up lettering, in which the letters are drawn.). A more contemporary definition of calligraphic practice is "the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious and skillful manner". That's what the work of Wanda Pot exemplifies at it's best. When I saw these calligraphy examples that Wanda created I had to write a post to bookmark them and share with you guys.
Criatipos' girls did some serious juggling to fill this space of 90 square feet! The project was a temporary store of good deeds by a local mall. Here are the process and the outcome of that challenge, take a look!
