Hero Images

The curators at Monotype reached out to me to create an original hero image for featuring one of their fonts in use. I chose to work with Wanderlust Letters, a beautiful hand-painted typeface with a fun flair.

I was inspired to do something different than what I typically had seen the font used for (mostly Pinterest-ready girly quotes and whimsical wedding designs). To me, the letters evoked feelings of summer, so I wanted to illustrate a cocktail recipe for sipping on the porch in the heat of June.

I loved how nicely the font worked for pairing all caps and all lowercase styles. The family also comes with a set of extras – like the banner, heart, and flourish ‐ which I had fun incorporating into the design.

Super honored to be a part of this! Check out the archive to see all the incredible past works.
