I am a freelance graphic designer with 20 years experience designing tee shirts for the resort industry. Designing tee shirts for various clients is my main source of income and is what I love to do.
I create my custom fonts using Coreldraw and Fontlab Studio to accent my various tee shirt designs, usually for headlines or subheads.
I purposely create most of my fonts with a worn or antiqued feel to them.
All my fonts are hand drawn and hand kerned by myself. Therefore, you might find that some of my fonts have subpar kerning. I try the best I can to make them workable for others.
My inspiration comes from late 19th century designs and artwork.
Victorian age and Post-Impressionism art and advertising, when all was manually illustrated from notable artists such as Toulouse Lautrec, Egon Schiele, Edward Penfield and many others from that era.
I also find early 20th century art movements and poster art ephemera such as Art Deco, Art Nouveau, to be very influential.
