Alonzo Felix

Truly lovely typographic work from Mr. Alonzo Felix. He has a remarkable grasp of these letterforms and can pair them nicely with wit and whimsy. The flourishes on the piece below as well as the L, further down, feel especially balanced and help add to the tight compositions.

But Alonzo steers clear of a one-track body of work; the A, D and B below speak more to his breadth and variety. Those pieces (and there are more on his site) have nice detail, boldness, and benefit from the use of texture.

Sweat the Small Stuff is available as a limited-edition screenprint.

Love his work! Well deserved feature!

^Jessica Hische. Modern graphic style has devolved into a kind of ubiquitous slapstick parody, fueled by the internet.

(His name is Alonzo Felix.)

I love his colour palettes. Very yummy.

Thanks for the feature today! Aside: My name is misspelled twice in the article. Please revise if possible.

Ack! So sorry for the misspelling, Alonzo!

Wow, freshest work I’ve seen in a long time!

Now this has my eyeballs drooling. Killer work.

Seconding Whitney’s comment. Wow. Total mimic :/

Really nice work .. especially dig WE ARE THE BEGGARS…

Sadly agree with Jen.
Pretty, but completely derivative! Blatantly derivative, even :(

Beautiful letterforms! I’m in love.

Strongly agree that Alonzo Felix’s design sensibilities are fresh, colorful and yummy. Paul Rand said, “Don’t try to be original, just try to be good.” Alonzo Felix is both: Original and Good.

I also enjoy the work by Jessica Hische.

Before presenting the absurd claim that one particular person owns a monopoly on ornamental initials and calligraphic flourishes, I would recommend taking an introductory graphic design history course.

He needs to find himself. Please leave that cupcake cute exploited hische world.

No one has proprietary rights to embellished letterforms but, to work, they must pass the test of legibility.
