Since when one of my illustration was selected to join the Moleskine Cover Art Collection of 2011, I felt inclined to develop a project entirely with typography. I’ve been for a long time studying the font not only as text but also as an image, and I discover excellent artists, among them I can mention @chrispiascik, @rohdesign, @JacquiOakley and Greg Eckler, daily and constant inspirations. In the meantime, remained stationary for more than a year in my closet, a limited edition Moleskine Helvetica, waiting for the right time to be used. To make this project something more personal, I decided to use it to train my English in a fun way. I had then the idea to create letterings with lyrics that I like, or that were on hit parade, or that were suggested by friends. That’s it! The initial idea was to post a song per day, but because of other projects that came along I could only do this until song # 67. In the following pages you can check the final result of a moleskine with a lot of visual reference. Enjoy!
I love illustration + design + books!
