Trend sourcing: I usually attend conferences like ATypI, TypeCon, Typographics, the Letterheads and TYPO Labs, which is the place to get in touch with people, ideas, information and news. But for the ordinary, everyday updates of what’s new and who did what, it’s Instagram.
Fascinating shapes: I find a lot of inspiration in strangers’ handwriting—there are so many unique, innovative shapes and weird ligatures and connections that I can transform into new characters. Most people hate their handwriting, yet I find it fascinating.
Mind-blowing work: I’m always stunned by the work of James Edmondson of OH no Type Co., Ondrej Jób of Setup, Irene Pereyra of Anton
& Irene and Mika Melvas of Melvas Type Design.
