Font Friday

Today's 'Font Friday' post features these fab typographic scarves by The Little Factory.  You can buy them in either uppercase, lower case or just plain numbers.  I wonder if I should purchase one for my next customer meeting?  
Hmm, perhaps taking my typography obsession a little too far...

This week's favourites...

A few of this week's favourite bespoke typographic designs by More Than Words...



...and a few more , which I haven't had time to photograph...

Font Friday

Every Friday I thought it would be fun to share a favourite typography find or two on the blog, for the appreciation of wordy geeks such as myself.


This week I came across the work of Joby Cummings, an amazing US tatoo artist turned graphic designer, and his 7sins design.  Very clever.  Can you spot them all?

I am a huge fan of wordboner.com, clever daily typography quotes.  This site will keep you browsing all day.






To finish off, as a make-up fan, this has to be this week's favourite font (lowercase make-up)...love it!

Launching 'You Are Just My Type' - Limited Edition Laser Cut Typography

Today I'm very excited to launch an exclusive new product which has been months in the making!

More Than Words, ‘the home of bespoke typographic art’, and Cutture, designers and creators of luxury laser cut stationery, have collaborated to launch a striking piece of limited edition laser cut typographic artwork : 

Cutture and More Than Words will produce only 150 pieces, consisting of the phrase ‘You are just my type’, laser cut from a luxurious leatherette card, with the representation of tiny metal type sorts spelling out ‘I Love You x’, scrolling like paper from a laser cut typewriter, cut and assembled in layers. This is then mounted onto textured card, using a bright teal background colour that really pops, before being framed to fine art standards in a 3” deep heavy dark wood. Its intricate work and the finished results are stunning. 
Each piece will come with a unique laser cut numbered tag.

Priced at £295. Available to buy online at www.morethanwords.uk.com and www.cutture.com

Size :  18 x 29 inches
More Than Words was launched in 2010 by creative designer Lisa Long. Lisa's lifetime love of interiors, graphic design and typography, combined with a search to find a piece of original artwork for her own home, led her to follow her creative passion.

“I am always searching for quality new products that have a ‘wow’ factor and knew instantly that a collaboration with Cutture would result in visually stunning typographic artwork.  Their creations are renowned in the industry and, in joining forces, I am excited to take More Than Words’ limited edition typography artwork offering to a new level.”

2009 saw the launch of Cutture by husband and wife design team, Dominic and Helen Sharland. With over a decade of graphic design and interior architecture experience, their passion for graphic design and paper cut art led them to the luxury stationery industry. They are excited by the collaboration with Lisa, a natural progression for their laser cutting expertise and design experience.

“It seemed such an obvious partnership when we approached Lisa in 2010 about a collaboration, Lisa’s work is very interesting and typography is always an avenue we at Cutture have wanted to explore further in the laser cut art form. There are many types of art pieces out there that use typography, and indeed laser or hand cut, however we wanted to create something a little different, going slightly 3 dimensional to add depth to a piece. We really hope that between us we have succeeded in producing an unusual and quality piece of art for people to display on their walls with pride!”.
