Type Study : FUTURA

Futura has been a favorite typeface of mine since I first studied & traced it in 2004 (say what?). The perfectly geometric (stunning) letterforms are clean, refreshing, & modern with chic style.

Design Wine Sunshine – The Mood Board

Design, wine, and sunshine are three of my favorite things. High five to the universe for letting them rhyme! Sure – I wanted to add animals, palm trees, family, traveling, laughter, color, warmth … but I figured in the end, I could always loop my loves back around to each other. So here we are…
