I was procrasti-creeping around my computer and found this creepy abandoned WIP. Creepy.
Some unused type for an unnamed project. It’s a shame I can’t show you the whole thing, as these are some of my favourite letterforms and ligatures I have ever designed! Trying to think of something else I could repurpose this lettering style for.3 notes
Are you a fan of nice type and good feelings? Of course you are!
Recently I created these nine bits of lettering/illustration for Appreciate a Mate – an app that lets you share positive and inspirational messages with your friends.The app has 50+ different quotes, and each has been beautifully lettered/illustrated by a bunch of different artists and designers (including some of your favourite type heroes like Andrei Robu and Gemma O’brien).
You should go check it out and spread some luuurve!

Speaking of getting married. My fiance Tim Cruicky and I designed these cards for our elopement! We are getting married in Tokyo – the back is set in Japanese and says “we just got married, will you take our photo?”
These were beautifully printed by The Hungry Workshop with COPPER! edge painting. It’s so pretty! Eeeee! You can see the project in more detail on their website. They also wrote super nice words about me, thanks guys! Check out the rest of their stuff while you’re on there, they are totes THE SHIZ.
In about 5 weeks, I am going to be a married woman.

Is this the death of @jess__wong?
Is this the birth of @jesscruicky?
An important question.
