To celebrate the launch of my new site, here’s a font fun wallpaper download for desktops, and mobile devices!
If you haven’t already taken a look at the I Love Type book series by Gingko Press, I highly recommend it. Each book showcases a classic typeface and features work that uses each face in fresh and imaginative ways. So far, they’ve published books on Futura, Avant Garde, DIN, Gill Sans, Franklin Gothic, Helvetica, Times, and, my personal favourite of the series, Bodoni.
This pattern was created after flipping through the Bodoni book for the hundredth time, jumping into Illustrator and playing around with the typeface for a while. Slightly abstracted, Bodoni can become sort of mid-century-ish, with it’s graceful curves and sharp angles. Enjoy!
