Kristina Krogh

Kristina Krogh

Kristina Krogh is a Danish designer and artist based in Copenhagen. With a fascination toward organic textures, she creates chic geometric collages that explore the graphic rhythms found in nature. This can be seen in the way she layers wood, cork, stone, hair, and other materials into images that are dynamic and brilliantly balanced. Many of these attributes will be displayed in a new line of home accessories she will be launching this summer.

Sponsor // The Hungry JPEG

fetridge font

Fetridge & Outfitter

In recent years script fonts have found a renewed interest. Known for their fluid and varied strokes these digital counterparts draw inspiration from sign painting of the past and present. Since they are based on the gestures of the written word, they can add warmth and personality to a design often making it more approachable.

In today’s post we highlight a series of scripts from our sponsor The Hungry JPEG. Ranging in a variety of styles and weights  the examples below represent just a small fraction of their current catalog.

Chris DeLorenzo Interview

Chris DeLorenzo

I’ve been following the work of Christopher DeLorenzo for sometime now and i’ve always been impressed with his ability to skillfully navigate between illustration, type and design with the slightest of ease. Building on simple forms, he crafts character-driven work that is equally informed by his love for film and passion for literature. A native of Massachusetts, Chris briefly ventured into NY for a stint at Saatchi & Saatchi X. He has since returned, to take on the lead design / art director role at the clothing brand Johnny Cupcakes. We’ve featured Chris’s work on the site in the past, but in today’s interview he grants us a closer look into his work and process.
