Like many designers, I have a font fetish! I just love type. In my studio, I have a bookcase full of books about type. There’s something so elegant, yet simple about fonts… it’s amazing what a few lines, brush strokes and curves can do to give characters personality. Because I have this font obsession, and, of course, I love travel– I thought I’d start a series of posts dedicated to exploring typefaces that are reminiscent about a location. Here’s the first to kick it off, type inspired by India.
