My Favorite Maps of the United States

I hope y’all had a fun St. Patrick’s Day! I didn’t do anything special yesterday but I did go to a parade on Saturday. This one house has an amazing party every year, you can see a few photos on my Instagram. So onto today’s post! As a graphic designer, I have always been drawn to maps. I have a few in my home office and I even made a travel map of my own to highlight my travels. If you are not into DIY, I’m sharing some of my favorite posters of the U.S. over on Printaholic today including this gorgeous hand-drawn typographic one by Old English Co

Showcase Font by Latinotype [Friday Favorites]

Showcase, the new typeface of Daniel Hernandez and Paula Nazal is a handmade font composed of four styles: script, sans, slab, sans mini plus a set of ornaments and dingbats. Showcase is very easy to use and the styles are designed to mix well and work together in perfect harmony. The underlying theme is handwriting: all styles look as if they have been carefully hand-drawn with a monolinear round pen. The result is a versatile and easy-to-use family that allows great versatility for magazine design, menus, labels, brochure titles and so much more. And great news, there is an amazing introductory discount of 80% off until April 12, 2014!

Moodboard: Bold + Beautiful

I had the opportunity to work on a really cool rebrand a few months ago. They wanted the new identity to have dimension and be full of energy. This mood board was created to represent the bold, beautiful, current and fabulous woman behind the brand! It’s still in the process of being implemented but I hope to share the full project soon!
