Fonts and fonts bundles

Ah, Fonts ¬†and fonts bundles are sweet ! I don’t know a designer that will say “I have enough fonts”.

We buy and use lots of fonts in our work.

It’s crucial to use quality fonts, just like in cooking you would want to use good quality ingredients.

With more than 1000 fonts bought in the last 2 years we’d love to share with you our favorites – great quality with great artistry. Many of them are purchase directly from the designers from their shops on Creative Market.

What I got to love recently is that just like us illustrators, the font makers are occasionally releasing font bundles with selected fonts from their shop. Love being able to buy all from the same designer, even if I already have few fonts from them.

My last purchase was this

MakeMediaCo. all fonts bundle

It’s an awesome selection of great quality handmade fonts and I’m so happy I bought it! Thank you¬†MakeMediaCo. !

 

We have a Pinterest board with various fonts we’re liking for one reason or another and a board with graphic design tutorials. Check them out for interesting tips on font pairing and basic rules of design – great for newbies!

I don’t know about you, but I get inspired by a beautiful typeface, that is both well drawn and well executed.

We have made few fonts for our own needs like this one here¬†¬†and 3 more monogram fonts that will be in the shop soon (waiting for the frames yet…) and I know how much hard work ¬†it takes¬†to make a working font that is well drawn and working good. So please, take a second and appreciate the font designers/makers¬†work!

Autumn Charm clipart collection launch

We made it!
It took around a month and on average 10 hours a day, but oh, did we love it!
I think this was by far the most fun clipart collection, but hey, I say this every time ūüôā

My background in picture book illustration was helpful with the characters development. I found out I miss illustrating for kids, so it might not be our only collection in this area.

My other half had hilarious time animating the hedgehog for the painting process video.

I’ll be showing you more details¬†soon.

Have a great week!  (mine started awesome!)


Take me there! I have to have this now!

Newsletter and new shop

 Newsletter

We believe it is really important to be able to communicate directly, to ask you what you think about certain product we work on or what would you love to get in our next set; share with you discounts and free graphic resources (like clipart and textures) and let you know the minute there is new or upcoming collection.  In short we want to talk with you Рour customers and followers.
For this we have now added a subscription form for our monthly newsletter. Well, newsletter sounds a bit pompous for what we plan, but you’ll see.

Gumroad Shop

Another news is after trial and error we decided to go with Gumroad for our own shop. ¬† In the next few weeks we’ll be gradually uploading all our collections and fonts in big and small bundles. ¬†This will give you more personalized choices when you’re deciding on what clipart you need for your project and what license. All will be crystal clear and easy.

And here is a sneak peek of what we’re up to right now

The path

Bird Watercolor on canvas

We started this journey already few decades ago as kids. It is time to share it in a new for us way.

It has a path and it led us here, so we invite you to join us and let us know where yours leads you. We keep discovering new realms every now and then.

Exploring drawing and painting for the joy of it is a spectacular experience!

Thank you for sharing ours.
