I came across this super cool Google Chrome plugin the other day and wanted to share it with you all! It’s called Palettab. If you’re a type and color lover, this is definitely for you.
It’s taken the simple task of opening a new tab in your browser window, and equipped it with inspiration. So each time you open a new tab, Palettab generates a collection of 5 typefaces using Google Fonts, and 5 colors in your new window. Hovering over the color reveals its hex value (ex. #30c4c9) and hovering over the typeface shows the author with the ability to click on it, where it then sends you to a link to download it if desired.
Try out Palettab and see how you like it! I’ve had it for about a month now, and it always makes a new tab that much more fun and exciting!
Lulo Clean is one of my recent, new favorite typefaces. It’s a clean, san serif typeface that is also available in knocked out weights giving it 3D qualities if desired. Bold, outline, and thin weights are also part of the Lulo Clean font family. Read More
To continue my cut shape/paper inspiration, Kitty McCall is another designer that has been very inspiring to me. Her work uses color while also at times bringing pattern into different fields of shapes. I love all of these pillows designs, but this first one here using multiple colors is my favorite. It’s so energetic and happy! Which design is your favorite?!
I always enjoy these posts. Like I’ve mentioned in previous ones, it’s a great way for me to see how my work has changed and evolved, what colors I’m using, and which styles I’m loving as well. I love the pastels here in this composition with touches of neon purple. Although I love my work and this style, I’ve been feeling like I want to see something more…something different. It’s taken me a bit, but I think I’ve finally found it (for the time being). I will of course share more when it’s ready! Happy lettering everyone!
I’ve been really inspired the past few months with cut paper, shapes, and how they form patterns and other design compositions together. Australian designers Beci Orpin, Leah Bartholomew, and Kirra Jamison are some of my favorites who do this very well. Beci chooses really unique shapes when working which is why I’m drawn to both of them. Read More
