font geek moment: st. lorie

Our apricot trees are super bountiful this year, and the Mémé’s have taken to making lots and lots of jellies and jams. They keep asking me to make them some fancy labels … I think St. Lorie may be the perfect font. It reminds me a bit of French schoolgirl handwriting.


font geek moment: quanta

The studio looks like a hurricane blew through here. Multiple deadlines and last minute projects and juggling clients is wearing on me. I’m also getting ready for the NSS meetup in Brooklyn, but wanted to quickly post about the big sale on VEER. Everything is 25 percent off through June 10, 2011. As soon as things settle down I’m going to scoop up some new fonts, and QUANTA is on the list. What do you have your eye on?


font geek moment: pointy


There’s something dynamite (as in Napoleon Dynamite) about this cute and retro new font in my toolbox: POINTY. Reminds me of passing notes in class. Do kids still do that? Or is it all texting these days? 


font geek moment: ambicase modern

Font Shop, you are killing me. Dangling fabulous fonts in front of my nose via email is some sort of sick torture that you enjoy, isn’t it? I was perfectly happy not knowing that Ambicase Modern existed. Now it’s all I can think about, and poor Santa is going to have to figure out a way to wrap up a font and get it down the chimney. If I can wait that long.


font geek moment: geeoh hmk

This sweet, scripty girly font is usually not what I go for, but it has charmed me. I heart Geeoh HMK.


font geek moment: neutra display


font i love: buttermilk

While researching for a logo design I was working on earlier this year I came across the font Buttermilk. It reminds me of puffy stickers and unicorns and rainbows ... in a very (very) good way. I'll be using it in some upcoming Delphine promos.


font love: sudestada

I found this lovely handwriting font called Sudestada while researching for a fun project we're working on here in the studio. I can't reveal the project just yet ... but it has to do with flowers.


font geek moment: worstveld sling

Yes, I'll admit it, I am a typography nut. I've been known to purchase a font that costs more than 100 dollars. But today I ran across a font called Worstveld Sling, which has seven variations, and is 100 percent free! I'm downright giddy. You can download it here at Fontspace.


font love: nelly script

I met illustrator and calligrapher Crystal Kluge of Tart Workshop at the National Stationery Show last May and was blown away by her talent. She recently released a new set of fonts, based on her calligraphy, called Nelly Script and Nelly Script Flourish. Needless to say both fonts are now at the top of my studio supply wish list.

Here is how Tart Workshop describes their font: "Nelly is a beautiful yet sensible romantic ... she’s a bit formal but not stuffy and simply adores a lovely party." Indeed, I can totally see Nelly adorning a backyard garden party invitation, or a save the date announcement for a romantic afternoon tea.


font geek moment: young finesse


Linkyoung finesse by doyald young, available at

I am loving this font (though the name reminds me of shampoo).



font geek moment: SALE

font geek moment: archer


Archer, by Hoefler & Frere-Jones, is an impossibly cool font, right? I love all the different weights, especially the thin italic and light small caps.
