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.
Let's finish off the week with a typography design and calligraphy project that totally defines a genre and style. Overall, It kind of reminds me of the work from the latest Fantastic Beasts movie or even Pirates of the Caribbean. Designed by Hanoi-based Biksence Nguyen, we are taken on this voyage of mixture of lettering, gradients and textures. It's quite beautiful, I personally loved this take on the "Octopus" piece, you'll understand what I mean when you see it.
I love letterings, it brings back great memories from my childhood going to the farmers market on Sundays with my parents not to mention every neighborhood grocery had tons of lettering for prices, promotions and advertisings. It's amazing to see that this craft is getting stronger again and seeing the work that Jackson Alves put together for poster for the Mexican beer Sol is true proof of that. The Advertising Agency Talent from São Paulo (Brazil) hired me to create two handmade posters for the Mexican beer SOL.
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.
