Martinojana Design


60 degrees outside and sunny. Never seen my son so happy after he got an old Benny Goodman Cd in the mail. He cranked it in the car and it made me smile. Handmade type...JAZZ style.
See site for Martino jana design.

Darling Clementine


Sometimes it's hard to really tell if type is handmade or not. If letters are altered enough like this nice poster...they pass for me. This comes from a design shop called Darling Clementine.

Otto typeface




This is a commercial font, but the work I see done with it seems very deliberate with each letter. I think the economist ad is cool and I posted a few ways work has shown both personalities of this typeface called Otto.

Love the clay and the type. I have to post two!

Egg Yolks

It looks like the two s's and k's are the same so perhaps this is an actual typeface...but this makes the blog because of the o's. If they tweak the typeface I will give an exception. She has lovely illustrations..check out her stuff.

Good mix.


Type meets design. Went through 4 issues of CMYK to find hand drawn type by Brooke Alexander at the University of Kansas.
