Hand Written Type

As mentioned in my previous post here are a bunch of handwritten type faces that I've been playing around with for various projects. Generally I'll find an old poster with only a few words on it and build the type around that. Enjoy!

The Bizarre Market

I just finished making the poster for Richmond's Fall Bizarre Market. What's the Bizarre Market you ask. Well, its a recurring event that consists of local artists, crafts people, and others selling all kinds of stuff like baked goods, jewelry, greeting cards, and anything else you can think of.

The first Fall market is on Saturday, Sept. 18th at The Visual Arts Center (1812 W. Main St.) from 12-6pm. I think I'm supposed to be doing portraits or something like that for it. Ten percent of all proceeds benefit SOHO (a Space of Her Own), a mentoring program for girls from Gilpin Court sponsored by the Visual Arts Center of Richmond. For more info click here.

As far as the poster goes- I hand made two type faces for it, which is something I've been playing around a lot with lately. I think I'll make a post soon featuring all the type faces I've been messing with. Overall it was a ton of fun to work on and I'm looking forward to seeing it hanging around town.
