Sim & Zou


Sim and Zou are two French artists based in Nancy, France.  The duo, Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann, are best known for their installations using primarily their favorite material, paper. In reviewing their projects we found this incredible handmade font created with thread and paper. Weave Type 2 was made with 550 yards of thread and required about 6 hours per letter.

You can see their first weave font and paper projects on their website and on Behance.

Moshik Nadav Typography


Brooklyn-based Moshik Nadav creates sophisticated type for fashion and luxury brands.  Born and raised in Israel he relocated to Brooklyn, New York and established his studio, Moshik Nadav Typography specializing in high-end logotype and custom typography.  On Creative Pro he has this advice for students of typography and design:

“Get yourself a comfy chair because you are about to spend most of your time on it. Be original, be unique. Show the world something new. Don’t try to be someone else. Don’t mimic your favorite designer. Invent your style and be good at it. Never stop learning even after you graduate.”

You can view his work on his website, Instagram, Facebook and Behance.  His fonts can be purchased on his website.

Alexandra Snowdon


Loving the work of UK-based artist Alexandra Snowdon.  She is a self- employed illustrator and hand lettering artist, working on commissions from a range of worldwide clients. On Design Juices she says this about her work:

‘The lettering and illustrations in my prints are all created by hand, starting off as tiny pencil doodles in my sketchbook. I complete the finished pieces using ink (if I want the design to be bold and striking) or pencil (for a softer look). The designs are then either transferred to a silkscreen for hand printing or output on my giclée printer using fade resistant, archival inks. I try to keep computer usage to a minimum, using it mainly as a tool to clean up and rescale my artwork. I try not to make it look too ‘perfect’ though, I love seeing evidence of the human touch and all it’s quirks and imperfections.’

You can find the artist on her website, Instagram and Behance.  You can purchase her prints and cards in her Etsy shops.
