Stringfellows Typeface


My latest typeface!

I’m just completely in love with all hand-lettered artwork at the moment…I could stare at all of it for hours on end…particularly typographical quote posters…and wedding invites….and custom address stamps …I couldn’t take it any longer and just had to make something reflective of all of the beautiful custom hand lettered creations out there…so I whipped out my pens :)

Every stroke is made with love and attention…the same love and attention any doting illustrator gives to any unique art piece….The idea is to give you something you can use quickly, to make it look like you toiled over your custom type artwork for hours :) I hope it helps you as much as its intended to!

By popular request, it now includes extra international characters with bonus ornaments and catchwords.

You can have a look at it – or get it at Creative Market.
