Today, I’m pleased to introduce my 3 latest typeface designs: Peruse, TerraStamp, and NimblePen. You can buy them and my previous fonts over on my shop page.
Peruse blends simple modernism with vintage charm. The uppercase letterforms have containers with rounded interiors that were inspired by lead came joints used in the process of making stained glass. The intention for this font was to reinvent retro stylings with a fresh lens. Supports English only. Get it here for $15.
TerraStamp combines the best of hand-stamped texture, geometric shapes, and stencil technique. The font contains two sets of uppercase letterforms – mixing circles, triangles, and squares for a variety of letter options. The 2-font family offers a Regular (simplified outlines, no texture) and Textured (detailed outlines with inner texture). Supports multiple languages. Get it here for $15.
Inspired by the act of sketchnote taking, NimblePen is a reliable hand-crafted sans serif typeface that contains two variations of uppercase letterforms only. By typing a mixture of uppercase and lowercase letters with NimblePen, you can create bold, natural words as if they were drawn by hand. Supports multiple languages. Get it here for $5.
During the month of August, I decided to try my hand at creating some new illustrations that combined short nature quotes with simple integrated imagery and stylized lettering. I selected quotes from John Muir and Theodore Roethke as my starting points, and laid out a simple wireframe for each piece in Illustrator with the pencil tool. Next, I printed the templates and inked over them on tracing paper. While inking each piece with my microns, I attempted to create different textures in the visual elements. Overall, I’m really pleased with how these turned out.
The Muir screen print and the Roethke screen print are both available for sale on our Satchel and Sage Etsy shop.
Earlier in June, Morgana and I launched our Satchel & Sage website, along with a 2012 Summer Look Book of our current collection of goods. We hope you enjoy this sampling of our work!
Today, I’m delighted to report that we’ll be in a beautiful local holiday craft fair called Feliz Sale this November 2nd in Austin, Texas. Read more about the festivities here.
We also are excited to announce that we’re working on getting our goods into local Austin stores. We’ve partnered with Mockingbird Domestics to offer our goods in their South Lamar store that opens up in September. You can read an interview that they did with us over on their blog. We’re also selling a small selection of goods at Gallery D on 2nd Street.
