Vintage tin box - Babbelaars

These tin boxes are still for sale, new ones, filled with candy. They still look similar, a little newer though. This one is in rather poor condition but I couldn't help buying it, since Zeeland is the part of Holland I grew up.

Font design sketches

Designing a typeface is an enormous amount of work, which usually starts out by hand. I worked on a typeface in art college but have never gotten past the sketching stage. I'd love to show you my sketches one day, but I'm afraid they're lost in the attic.

I've done a quick Google search for hand sketches and here are the results. If you're interested in the proces of type design start reading I love typography, where I found most of these images.

Around Christmas I received this beautiful book. It was a giveaway from Libertas, a printer we work with. The company celebrated their 30th anniversary. For that occasion they initiated to publish and produce this book. U30, a book about the creative industry in the 5th largest city in the Netherlands, Utrecht. The concept is developed by Enof. The design is by 30 different creatives from Utrecht.
